How to Identify Hornets
Hornets are a large type of wasp that was introduced to North America in colonial times. They live in highly organized communities, are extremely aggressive and can sting over and over again. They are a common pest on Long Island, parts of New York City, and throughout Westchester and Rockland Counties.
Hornets create tear-shaped nests on the sides of buildings or hanging from the eaves or trees. Some wasps favor the undersides of wooden decks. You can often locate a Hornet by carefully watching the individuals as they forage, then converge on the hive. Be careful, as you may not be able to see the whole hive or the extent of the hornet infestation.
