Identification: European This wasp has an elongated thick body, long antennae, and wings about the size of their body length. While many are black-bodied near the head and yellow toward the rear, others have more of a reddish hue instead of black. This yellow and black combination makes them easily confused with yellow jackets, despite being considerably less aggressive. Their stinger is relatively small, but still powerful, and their wings are partially translucent and range in hue from red to grey to amber. The queen is the largest member of the hornet colony. European hornets are not as aggressive as bald-faced hornets, but will nevertheless sting if their colony is disturbed. European hornets tend to make their nests in secluded, aboveground locations such hollow trees, attics, porches and inside wall voids.
In the Garden or House
Because of the social nature of this hornet, the nests are considerably larger than most. This means it is easy to spot one so long as they are perched, and have not been embedded into the trunk of a tree (an uncommon but possible occurrence). Once a nest has been formed not much can be done on your own to exterminate it, and attempts to do so may be dangerous given the size of colonies. Once you notice a nest being constructed it is advised that professional consultation is brought in to determine the problem and if steps need to be taken to eliminate the European hornet infestation. While hornets are unlikely to wander into your home to search for food like other insects are, it may still be dangerous to have them so close to your home and family. Bald-Faced Hornet:
Identification: Bald-faced hornets are characterized by the ivory white markings across their faces, thorax, legs, and abdomens. The queen and her offspring range in size from 13 to 20 millimeters with the queen being the largest in the nest.
In the Garden or House:
Hornet nests are constructed with paper-like material produced by the hornets mixing their saliva together with the wood fibers they gather. During the time that nests are being built, it is common to see hornets scraping away a thin layer of wood from a wooden fence, an old log or the side of an unpainted wooden building. The progression of the season will bring about 100 to 400 workers in the nest. These are often found in shrubbery and bushes, as well as attached to man-made structures like houses or commercial structures. These nests are usually gray and can be anywhere from 18 inches wide and 24 inches tall and up. Air vents are located at the top of the nest, allowing air in, but not other elements.
