Bald Face Hornets

One of the most common hornets in Georgia is the Bald Face Hornet. However, the Bald Face Hornet isn’t actually a hornet. In fact they belong to the wasp family and are actually aerial nesting yellow jackets.

They are very defensive of their nests and are very aggressive! Unlike bees Bald Face Hornets can sting multiple times and are known to chase their victims for quite a distance, stinging them repeatedly causing severe swelling and even in some cases anaphylaxis.

Depending on where the nest is located you could have some major problems! Nests that are located high up in the tree tops or far away from human traffic pose little threat to people. However, nests located near areas such as trees near a house, porches, decks, and other areas near your home can be very dangerous.
