I have found two hornets in my backyard in Salem. My husband said I should report it as he read something about a hornet problem in WA. One of them my cat was after but I smashed it because I was scared it was huge.

Most likely they are not the Asian Hornet, as they are currently only found in a small area of Washington. You may however submit a photo to the Oregon Department of Agriculture Insect Pest Prevention & Management Program: plant-entomologists@oda.state.or.us
