Wasps & Hornets
Wasps – particularly hornets – are especially dangerous, as they are more likely to respond aggressively when disturbed, and they do not die or lose their stinger after stinging, like honeybees do. Wasps and hornets are generally 2-3 centimeters in length, and have three legs on either side as well as antennas and wings. They also have a sharp point on the end of their abdomen used for stinging. Colors vary throughout different species, but the most common ones are usually black with a yellow stripe on the lower abdomen, vibrantly black and yellow striped like a honeybee or just pure black.
Wasps, unlike bees, build their nest out of a paper-like substance they make with a mixture of chewed wood and saliva. Wasps nests are similar to beehives in that they also contain cells where the wasps nurture their larvae. However, wasps do not build as many cells because they do not store things such as pollen and honey, like bees do. They often build their nests in trees, shrubs, corners of buildings and sometimes even underground.
Hornets are a type of wasp, the main difference between hornets and other wasps is in the coloring and how painful their sting is to humans. Hornet stings are particularly painful to humans due to a higher amount of acetylcholine in their venom. The severity of the stings can vary among species from a typical insect sting to a sometimes-deadly reaction to the venom. The more venomous species of hornets do not inhabit the United States. The only true species of hornet commonly found in North America is the European Hornet, which can still pack a painful punch, but rarely cause life threatening reactions – unless the person stung has a severe allergy.
