Dangerous hornets - level 2
A province in northwest China is having serious problems with dangerous insects. Many people have been injured and 41 people have died.
It's all because of Asian Giant Hornets. This kind of hornet is highly toxic and it often causes a strong allergic reaction. Attacks by the hornets are normal in this part of China, but this year is somehow worse, much worse.
Most of the attacked people are farmers but some cities are in danger. Firefighters are trying to help. They remove the hornets' nests. Good luck!
Difficult words: insect (small animal with six legs), hornet (animal which looks like a big wasp), nest (place where the insects live).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
