First 'murder hornet' nest in U.S. destroyed in Washington
"Asian giant hornet that invaded the U. S detected here in our state a few months ago in Markham County there last week confirmation, of course, the nest found they plan to eliminate it. And they did now, the question. To find a queen in that is there more queens are more nests by the size of a basketball contained an estimated 100 to 200 Hornets. Lot of beekeepers around Puget Sound. I know what many musicians for Bee keepers some radio people. Todd Meyers is the environmental policy director of Washington Policy Center. He's a beekeeper. He shared some knowledge and everything he's been looking at here with their murder Hornet. And talked with talk show host John Carlson of our sister station 5. 70. K V. I. He started the conversation with the capture of the live be where they used the dental floss to tie a tracer device to it. So as a flew back to the nest. Yeah, So you talked about them, tying the transmitter. There is a photo of the person who was doing that with bare hands. Squeezing the hornet on and tying it on. Just for context. If my bees decide they're grumpy at me, and I get stung about 100 times. It will be very unpleasant. But I will live. Um The Asian giant Hornet. If you get stung 5 to 10 times, it will kill you. So that gives you a sense of how dangerous they are. And so you know, whoever is being paid to hold on to one of these with their bare hands and tie on the transmitter. Is brave and probably not being paid enough. So that gives you a sense of the challenge of not just finding them, but then eradicating them because they are very dangerous. Okay. They're about twice the size of a normal hornet. Where they native to because there aren't native to here. There They are called the Asian giant Hornet. For a reason. They come from China. They're in Japan on DH. They we suspect that they came over on some sort of agricultural shipment where they hit out. The first ones were actually found on Vancouver Island near Victoria on DH. Then they have spread and so they were found in Watkins County. Andrei, Let me ask you this flat out. If they didn't get them all. And the murder. Hornets survives. What changes Ah one people need to be more careful nest because they're very dangerous beekeeper who will have to figure out a way to protect Their hives. So they come up with strategies. You know, Like I said, this in Japan and elsewhere for a while, and so there are strategies to deal with him. In fact, State Department of Agriculture talked with lots of people in Japan who have dealt with these toe learn how to deal with them here, But things will change for people and for, um Beekeeper's so But I also think you know that that we will learn how to more effectively fight them and eradicate them. So, um I think we're just We may be just the beginning. But like I said, they've learned a lot in doing this and how to be effective and hopefully they can get more effective time. Couldn't they wipe out Washington's bee population, which has already faced several threats and has, you know managed to prevail. But would wouldn't murder Hornets me? Aren't they? Like you know an invasive thiss fish species? Sometimes you know that that can do terrible damage to native born. Yeah, there's there's no doubt that it's one more threat. I would say at this point, it's still just a threat. The other thing is that I think the University of Washington maybe Washington University, rather was a great beekeeping program, did a model and found that their range would really be sort of along the coast. Down to mid organ wouldn't go beyond that. Because the habitat is just not suited for them in the climate and other things like that, so they are very serious problem, But it's not at least from their modeling doesn't indicate that it would even go to the whole state or the whole country. And and I should point out that they don't pollinate. They don't make honey, right. I mean, you know, like yellow jackets and things like that, that occasionally I see a dead bees on the front of my hive. Yellow jackets have come and killed. So it's It's a similar sort of thing.
What crows teach us about death with Kaeli Swift
"Whether we want to or not human spend a great deal of time considering death. And it's possible we've been doing. So since shortly after Homo Sapiens, I began roaming the landscape. After all the first intentional human burial is thought to have occurred around one hundred thousand years ago. What might those early people have been thinking? As they took the time to dig into the earth deposit, the body and carefully covered up again. Were they trying to protect it from scavengers or stymie spread of disease? Were they trying to honor the deceased or did they just not want to have to look at a dead body? Without the advent of a time machine. We may never know for sure what those early people were thanking. But one thing we do know is that humans are far from alone in our attention towards the dead. Like people some animals including the corvettes, the family of birds that houses the crows. Ravens Magpies Jays also seemed to pay special attention to their dead. In fact, the rituals of corvettes made acted as the inspiration for own. After all, it was the raven that God sent down to teach Kane how to bury his slain brother able. But despite the clear recognition by early people that other animals attend to their dead, it's only fairly recently that science has really turned its attention towards this phenomenon. In fact, formal name for this field comparative Anthology. First introduced until twenty sixteen. In this growing field, we are beginning to appreciate what a rich place the natural world is with respect to how other animals interact with their dead, and it's in this growing body of knowledge at that time machine to our early ancestors might be possible. So what are we learning in this growing field? Well right now, we can split our understanding into two main groups. In the first, we have animals that display stereotyped predictable behaviors towards their dead and for whom much of what we understand about them comes from experimental studies. This group includes things like social insects, bees, ants, and termites, and for all of these animals colony hygiene is of critical importance and so as a result, these animals display rigorous undertaking behaviors in response to corpses. For example, they may physically remove carcasses from the colony they may consume them. They may even construct tombs. We see similar hygiene driven responses in some colony living mammals rats, for example, will reliably Berry cage mates that have been dead for forty eight hours. In our other group, we have animals that display more variable, perhaps more charismatic behaviors and for whom much of what we understand about them comes from anecdotes by scientists or other observers. This is the animals whose death behaviors I suspect might be more familiar to folks. It includes organisms like elephants which are well known for their attendance to their dead even in popular culture. In fact, they're even known to be attracted to the bones of their deceased. It also includes animals like primates which display a wide variety of behaviors around their dead from grooming them to. Prolonged attention towards them guarding them even the transportation of dead infants and that's actually behavior we've seen in the number of animals like the dolphins. For example, you may remember the story of Taleh, the ORCA in the resident J. pod in the puget sound who during the summer of two thousand eighteen carried her dead calf for an unprecedented seventeen days. Now a story like that is both heartbreaking and fascinating, but it offers far more questions than it does answers for example, why did Kerry her calf for such a long period of time. who she just that stricken with grief. Wishy more confused by her unresponsive infant. Or is this behavior just less rare in orcas than we currently understand it to be

Terms to myself. Well, here's the thing. I thought maybe today I would share with you some stories from my new book true tales of Puget Sound his eyelid. Love you to be as excited as I have about what I have come to call small history. See true tales is a book of small history. And what I mean by that is most history the kind I have trouble learning. Remembering is the big history. It's Lewis and Clark standing on a big rock staring out into the ocean. Which by the way, they thought they were there three weeks before they were, and you know, it's important. And you know, I mean living in in Washington state. We know it's important that they that they didn't find the ocean. But it's the small history, the grabs you like, the native American lady that said, you know, they didn't really find anything we were here the whole time or see nobody tells you about the fact that Lewis and Clark had food poisoning on the way out to the to the dearth west it came came about because like Edo military men. They felt like they really knew the answers and the native American ladies were cooking camas root chemist bulbs, which were a staple of diet in those days and. The thing about cameras, and you may wonder I've heard people ask in this era of sustainable food. Why we don't grow chemists? We don't have it masugi market. Well, because there's a trick to it which the native American women new, and that was they would create sort of a crock pot in the earth. They would dig a hole line with Kohl's bury the cameras and it had to cook for a week, which is a very long time. And I can just see these courageous explorers. A you know, we haven't got time for that. We've got to find the Pacific Ocean. What are we care if it's not as cooked as it should be? We'll be fine. We'll eat it now, and they did that and captain Lewis wrote about captain park laying by the side of the road for a week, not even able to move home. And there were no holiday ends. So when you. When you know that they face incredible hardship with no help from anybody. Someway, in my mind, the small those are the small histories that make the big ones stand out. It's like to quote, myself history doesn't stand still new history was being made as we finished our first Cup of coffee in the morning. And of course, it goes back for that. We can then we can trace we couldn't write about it. If people wouldn't share their stories, and that's where it is book came from everywhere, we went was used to do a show called my hometown.
