The Asian giant hornet is aptly named. It’s the largest hornet in the world and a fully grown adult can almost completely cover a human’s hand. The winged creatures are capable of growing up to 2 inches in length and can have a wingspan of up to 3 inches. This makes them many times larger than a typical wasp or hornet. Their stingers are typically as long as 1/4 of an inch.
