Bald-Faced Hornets form paper nests that can be as long as ~.9m (3ft) and as wide as ~.5m (1.5ft). These nests can be home to up to 400 Bald-Faced Hornets, all of which are mothered by its queen. Only the females have the ability to sting you, and that will more than likely happen if you come within a few meters of their nest. Bald-Faced Hornets are very protective of their colony. Their stingers are smooth which allows them to stab repeatedly, injecting venom with each sting. If that doesn't sound bad enough, they can spray venom into your eyes! • 📸1: Philip N.

Bald-Faced Hornets prey on insects such as horse flies, deer flies, caterpillars, and also spiders (which are arachnids, not insects). They also feed on fruits, pollen, and nectar. Because they feed on the before mentioned flies in such large numbers, they are quite important to keeping their population down. So next time you see one, thank it for the pest control! • 📸: C D Armstrong/⤵️ https://extension.umaine.edu/home-and-garden-ipm/fact-sheets/common-name-listing/bald-faced-hornet/ • *Requested by @thedogsofwinter • • #Dolichovespulamaculata #BaldfacedHornet #Insect #Vespidae #Hymenoptera #Animal #Animals #Nature #Wildlife #Biology #Zoology #TheZoologistBarista #ThatsWild
Bald-Faced Hornets are not actually hornets. They're yellowjackets. The term "hornet" is reserved for species of wasp that belong to the genus "Vespa". Bald-Faced Hornets belong to the genus "Dolichovespula"... Try saying that 5 times fast. • *Requested by @thedogsofwinter • • #Dolichovespulamaculata #BaldfacedHornet #Insect #Vespidae #Hymenoptera #Animal #Animals #Nature #Wildlife #Biology #Zoology #TheZoologistBarista #ThatsWild
*************Natur will be closed from Friday @4:30 until Monday @ noon **************************************** Brand new species of Wasp for me, and only fairly recently discovered , the “King of the Wasps”. These are rarely, if ever, found alive. There are wasps and hornets bigger than this species, but this one is known primarily for its unbelievable Sickle-shaped mandibles. Look how much bigger the mandibles are than it’s legs! #nature #biology #entomology #hymenoptera #wasp #vespidae #insect #oddities #curiosity #naturalworld #naturalcuriosities
En las últimas dos semanas hemos retirado 2 nidos primarios de #Vespavelutina . El 1ero (Imagen 1) en #Mataró , ubicado en el tocón de una propiedad privada. Fue un fracaso, pues no logramos capturar a la reina, la cual a estas alturas habrá construido un nuevo nido. En las imagen 2 vemos una reina sobre su nido retirado de un almacén municipal de #MolletDelVallés . En la imagen 3 observamos un comportamiento curioso que repetían las obreras con la reina y también entre ellas (trofalaxia quizá?). El 1er video muestra una obrera con los restos de una larva que mataron para alimentarse. El 2o video corresponde al ataque sobre un ejemplar de #Apismellifera moribundo que introdujimos en el bote. Fascinante. #avispaasiatica #PestControl #Controldeplagas #avispa #wasp #Himenoptera #vespidae #entomologia #Entomology #Biology #Biologia #etologia #etology #Nice #nature #awesome #Barcelona #catalunya #España Gracias a @verichy_mont por la extracción del nido.

Poor Waspy wanted a few gulps of water, then took a bath and almost drowned :( Good thing the big hero arrived, saved the day and took a picture as a reward xD #wasp #vespidae #dayissaved #hornet #almostdrowned #nature #insects
Too close for comfort! Yellow jackets, Vespula maculifrons, feeding on a dead bird. #vespidae #insectsofinstagram #wasps
Le vespe scelgono con cura dove nidificare prediligendo posti come i tetti, specie sotto le tegole. Ecco come i nostri tecnici trattano l’area interessata, procedendo poi alla rimozione dei nidi. #insector #insectorpestscontrol #pestcontrol #disinfestazione #vespa #vespidae #polistes #polistesdominula #nido #entomology #entomologia #insetto #work #lavoroinaltaquota #DPI #tetto #roof #bergamo #milano #lombardia #lombardy

The European hornet is a rather fearsome looking insect. Hornets strip the bark of trees to drink the sap. This one was seen with others at RHS Garden Rosemoor in Devon. #hornet #europeanhornet #hymenopterans #vespidae #vespacrabro #rhsrosemoor #rhs #rosemoorgardens #visitdevon #devon
#CuidadoPorDondePisas : #Polistes Pacificus pertenece a la tribu #Polistini . El género #Polistes es uno de los más grandes dentro de las avispas. En parte, las personas consideran que son una plaga, pero regulan las larvas u orugas, que son dañinas cuando hay en abundancia en cultivos. En esta ocasión, la avispa se dispone justamente a volar, simulando el efecto de salto. - Foto: @matos0893.

A potter wasp of the genus Euodynerus (specifically, Euodynerus pratensis). These wasps, while perfectly capable of building their own nests, are opportunistic. This one here has made her nest in some manmade bamboo fencing at the botanical gardens! . . . . . #potterwasp #euodynerus #inaturalist #wasp #wasps #bugsofinstagram #bugs #hymenoptera #vespidae
#Vespidae #Insect Common name: Wasp Because there are a large number of species in this order, wasps are named pests because the species can be dangerous to humans. Social wasps are considered pests when they become excessively common, or nest close to buildings
Oh hello there 😬 please don’t settle down around here. I promise you’ll not like it! And you have an entire forest out there.. #wasp #bålgeting #ginormous #störst #vespidaecrabro #vespidae #europeanhornet #calabrone
Die Hornisse kommt mehrmals stündlich an unserem Bachlauf vorbei und erfrischt sich immer an der gleichen Stelle. Den Fröschen sowie einigen anderen Bienen und Wespen gefällt es dort scheinbar ganz gut. Das Gleichgewicht aus Fließgeschwindigkeit und Pflanzen in beiden Teichen und dem Bachlauf scheint jetzt auch zu stimmen. Unser Teich ist jetzt nämlich wieder schön klar geworden ☺️ #hornisse #vespacrabro #p20pro #vespidae #abkühlung #bachlauf #gartenteich #naturelover #sommer #sonne #sonnenschein #sonntagnachmittag

Paper wasp, perhaps in search of a prey, on a raspberry leaf. #paperwasp #wasp #vespidae #predator #redraspberryleaf
Bald-faced hornet nest we had to knock down off our house before it got too big. Pictured here is the interior nest that hangs inside the large circular-shaped “paper” nest. The white capsules that are closed have larvae that are pupating into hornets, and the other larvae sit in the open to be fed by the female workers. This species is known for being profoundly aggressive, guarding their nests profusely. 🐝 _ _ #baldfacedhornet #dolichovespulamaculata #hornet #hymenoptera #vespidae #insectsofinstagram #bugsofinstagram #waspsofinstagram #hornetsofinstagram #bugstagram #bugslife #sting #entomology #pnw #seattle

Asian giant hornet 😍 (Vespa mandarinia) Via @mandukings check out his page 🐝 • Largest hornet species known to science!! These monsters can be found most commonly up high in the mountains of Japan, and are often observed raiding the nests of honey bees to take the larvae back to their nest and feed them to their own offspring. - - - - - - - - - - #hymenoptera #Vespidae #wasp #hornet #antmanandthewasp #balls #insects #insectsofinstagram #insects_macro #insect_perfection #bugsofinstagram #bugslife #staywoke #whywelovenature #whytho #goosebumps #phobia #arachnid #instagram #instacool #instawildlife #nature_good #wildattractions4u #explorepage #podcastlife #animals #petstagram #sting #japanese #大阪

The Vespidae are a large (nearly 5000 species), diverse, cosmopolitan family of wasps. Their aggressive behaviour and painful stings can cause a serious threat. Like bee venom, they also contain phospholipase A, the enzyme hyaluronidase, and histamine. There are, though, some differences in the chemical composition. As well as variations in percentages of the different components, they also contain the compound acetylcholine, not commonly found in bee venoms. 🐝 A redősszárnyú darazsak (Vespidae)  a  hártyásszárnyúak rendjének egyik családja. Agresszív viselkedésük és veszélyes csipésük miatt komoly problémát jelentenek otthonunk közelében. A méreganyag legnagyobb részét acetilkolin, valamint alacsony (hisztamin, dopamin, szerotonin, kinin, noradrenalin), továbbá nagy molekulatömegű anyagok, így enzimek (kolineszteráz, foszfolipáz-A és -B, hialuronidáz, proteáz) és poliszacharidok alkotják. Toxicitása a rovar táplálékától is függ, a fehérjét fogyasztóké a leginkább mérgező. • • • • • #yellowjacket #wasp #vespidae #instagood #discoverearth #wildlifephotography #insects_of_our_world #macrophotography #macroshot #macro_mood #macro_perfection #depthobsessed #macro_captures #instagood #insect #insects #macrolovers #closeup #bestnatureshot #wildlife #picoftheday #art #photooftheday #amazingearth #instaart #macroandflora #vfxrobert #érmellékigazdák #ége
