So we all know that obviously, with everything happening in the world, 2020 hates us. I guess 2020 wants to make sure all of here at 1749 Bertrand Dr. aren't forgetting because Cow Killer Ants or Cow Killer Wasps have shown up.

So what exactly is a "Cow Killer Wasp"? Can they really kill cows?

Technically it's called the Eastern Velvet Ant. No, it can't actually kill cows, but it's also not an ant either, although it crawls around on the ground like one.

Oh, and they scream. That's right. They scream.

They're called "Cow Killers" because their sting and venom are believed to be strong enough to kill a cow. They don't actively search for cows to kill, or at least we don't think so.
