What is a Hornet?
There are two types of hornet common in the Lakeland area, the Bald Faced Hornet and the European hornet. Hornets are very similar to yellow jackets, both of which are subspecies of wasps. The bald faced hornet is mostly black with yellowish white marking on its thorax and around its eyes and mandibles. The European hornet is a larger hornet with a yellow abdomen and brown thorax and head. Both hornets are social creatures, and like bees and yellow jackets have a queen hornet. Hornets are relatively passive but will attack if they are provoked.
Unlike yellow jackets, who nest underground and are often difficult to see until it is too late, hornets prefer to nest high up, in trees, building overhangs, and holes in walls and tree trunks. Because of Lakeland’s warm climate, hornets are fairly active and will scavenge for food often. Hornets and yellow jackets share a desire for sweet fruits and rotting meat and will often leave their hive to forage. Hornet hives are also similar to a yellow jacket hive. Hornets chew wood to great a pulp which they use to create a series of cells on the inside, with a covering on the outside, looking similar to a paper-mache balloon.
Hornets are predatory hunters as well, and can be used to kill insects that destroy crops and ornamental plants. Because they are useful but also dangerous, do not try to remove the hornet hive from the tree or porch they might have nested on. Call BeeMan Stan to come and safely remove the hive from you Lakeland home and relocate the creatures to a safe and secluded area.
