Bald Faced Hornet

  1. 1. Bald Faced Hornet Nest Dissection This dissection was performed AFTER the wasps had died off from repeated frosts in mid-November, 2006. Do not approach a wasp nest until the wasps die off, because they are extremely aggressive. Sometimes, the killing of one wasp can set off a pheromone trail telling the hive to swarm.That would end up being a very painful experience for everyone involved.
  2. 2. This nest was hanging from a limb in our back yard. Even though they are called “hornets”, they are in the vespid wasp family and were so aggressive that we had to avoid a portion of the backyard until the inhabitants died off from repeated frosts in November.
