Hornets belong to the wasp species. The primary distinction between the two is that hornets are significantly larger and less aggressive than wasps.
Hornets have smooth stingers that allow them to sting a victim several times. The bodies of these insects are lengthy and hairless, with thin waists.
Depending on the species, they occur in a range of color patterns, some of the most common include:
Hornets are less aggressive than other types of wasps, such as yellow jackets, although they will attack if they or their colony is threatened.
Those who are allergic to hornet venom may experience severe health issues. Hornet stings have the potential to induce anaphylactic shock in individuals with severe allergies or in cases of repeated stings.
In addition, hornet stings are well-known for being exceedingly unpleasant, with agony and swelling lasting for hours or days.
Hornets are a potentially severe pest problem that should never be underestimated. Never approach hornets or their nests purposefully.
Our yards provide hornets with abundant access to food and water, making them perfect nesting locations. Hornets can hunt for insects and consume nectar from plants in a range of outdoor environments.
Properties in or near forested areas, a large number of trees, gardens, and landscape plants attract these pests.
Hornets often build their nests in safe, elevated sites away from people and predators. They construct their nests from a paper-like substance produced by hornets by combining wood fibers and saliva.
Common hornet nesting locations include tree branches, dense shrubbery, and spaces beneath roof eaves. Some species prefer to nest in open spaces such as tree cavities, attics, or wall cavities.
Behind fragments of tree bark, within rotting logs or tree stumps, and behind the siding on our homes and garages, queen hornets spend the winter.
