A Few Facts About Hornets
Knowing a few facts about these buzzing insects can help you identify them and keep you and your family safe. Understanding the behavior and characteristics of hornets can help you take necessary precautions to avoid getting stung. Awareness of their aggressive nature and potential nesting areas can help prevent possible hornet encounters.
- Hornets Are Social Insects: Like other wasps, Hornets are social insects living in colonies. A single colony can consist of hundreds to thousands of individual hornets.
- Distinctive Appearance: Hornets have a unique black and yellow coloration, which serves as a warning signal to potential predators, indicating that they can deliver a painful sting.
- Larger Than Wasps: Hornets are generally larger than common wasps. They can measure up to 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 3.8 cm) in length.
- Stinging Defense Mechanism: Hornets use a potent sting primarily for defense. Their stings can cause pain, swelling, and in some cases, allergic reactions.
- Hornet Nests: Hornets construct paper-like nests of chewed wood fibers mixed with their saliva. These nests are usually found in protected locations such as tree branches, attics, wall voids, or underground.
- Nocturnal Activities: Hornets are more active during the day but may become more active during the late afternoon and evening to search for food.
- Hornets Are Notoriously Aggressive: When their nest or colony is threatened, hornets can be highly aggressive and will attack in large numbers to defend their territory.
It’s essential to exercise caution around hornets and their nests. If you encounter a hornet infestation on your property, it is advisable to seek professional pest control services for safe and effective removal.
