Like the other insects in the category of Hymenoptera, hornets pollinate some plants found within the United States, but their main purpose is to kill unwanted pests that harm plants and crops. When hornets are ready to build a new nest, made from saliva and wood pulp, they seek shaded, protected areas like trees or the side of houses. If you see these paper-like structured nests, keep distance and do not try and disrupt the hornets.


When hornets sting, their stinger remains, meaning they can repeatedly sting with their venom. Although both bee and wasp venom can be dangerous and cause allergic reactions, hornet venom is even more powerful.
