Hornets are the UK’s largest species of wasp. They are rarer than common German Wasps with most hornet nest sightings in the UK being made in Southern England. If you discover a hornets nest on your property, we strongly recommend that you seek professional hornets nest removal advice from a hornet control expert. Hornets have a brutal and painful sting. If the nest is not treated correctly, you are likely to be stung as the hornets will feel threatened.
We are often asked what the difference is between hornets and wasps. It is quite easy to tell hornets and wasps apart. Hornets measure up to 1.8 inches long and have a wingspan of up to 3 inches wide. As well as being larger than a common wasp, hornets can easily be identified by their orangey-yellow and brown striped body, which is different from the bright yellow and black stripe of a wasp.
There are similarities between hornets and wasps too. Hornet nests are similar to wasps nests and require similar treatment in their removal. Hornets tend also to nest in similar locations to wasps, so you might find a hornets nest under your property’s eaves, in a shed, or up a tree in your garden.
