Types of Hornets in
Warrenton VA
There are two types of hornets in our market:  Bald Faced Hornets and European Hornets. Let us take a look at what each looks like:
Bald-faced Hornets - Are black with white or ivory-colored markings. They build large, rounded, papery, gray nests, usually in trees. There's a reason they're called bald-faced hornets: Although they are mostly black, these wasps have white or ivory markings on their faces.
European Hornets - Their bodies are brown with yellow stripes on their abdomens. European hornets have pale faces. They have two pairs of wings and six legs. European hornets have long bodies and antennae.
Do Hornets Sting?
Hornets are more prone to sting when they feel threatened. A single hornet can sting once or multiple times, and sometimes hornets swarm and can cause tens or hundreds of stings.  Hornet stings can be extremely painful, and sometimes life threatening, which is why you want to hire a hornet exterminator right away to safely remove a hornet’s nest from your property!
Hornet vs. Wasp – What is The Difference?
All hornets are wasps, but all wasps are not hornets.  The major difference between wasp and hornets is size and color. Wasps are about 1/3 inch to 1 inch long. Hornets are larger. Wasps have black and yellow rings, while hornets have black and white rings.  Hornets are distinguished from other wasps by their wider heads and larger, more rounded abdomens; they also have a different life cycle.
