Bald-Face Hornet

Technically a Wasp
(Dolichovespula maculata)

The bald-faced hornet is distinguished from other yellowjackets by its striking black-and-white coloring. It has a white or “bald-faced” head, which is the source of its colloquial name. This wasp also has three white stripes at the end of its body and is notably larger than other species of Dolichovespula, as adults average about 19 mm (0.75 in) in length.[4] Queen and worker wasps have similar morphologies. Queens are always larger than workers in their colonies, though size distributions can vary in different nests, and workers in one colony might be as large as a queen in a different one.

European Hornet

(Vespa crabro)

The European hornet (Vespa crabro) is a formidable and fascinating insect native to Europe. Known for its imposing size, reaching up to 1.5 inches in length, and its distinctive black and yellow markings, this hornet is a formidable predator in the insect world. Although they can be intimidating due to their size and powerful stingers, European hornets play a crucial role in controlling insect populations, preying on a variety of pests like flies, bees, and caterpillars. Their nests, constructed from a papery substance, can be found in hollow trees, wall voids, or even underground, and are created with intricate precision by the colony’s members. Despite their reputation as fearsome creatures, European hornets are generally not aggressive unless their nest is threatened, and they are an essential part of their ecosystem’s delicate balance.
