European Hornets

Identification

  • Large, ¾-1 3/8″

  • Brown and yellow coloration

  • Make unprotected brown nests

Environment

  • Nests are built in hollow trees, barns, out buildings, hollow walls, attics, and abandoned bee hives

  • Prefer a more forested environment

Threats

  • Nests may be in human occupied areas

  • They are attracted to lights, and may be attracted to structures with lights

  • May kill plants trying to feed on sap/nectar

  • Relatively non-aggressive near the nest, but there is still some potential for a stinging hazard

  • Stings may be life threatening in sensitive individuals

Treatment

  • Make the area less attractive for nesting and feeding purposes

  • The nest will be located and treated with an appropriate product if necessary

  • European hornets are beneficial organisms and are therefore only controlled when they pose an immediate threat
