|Ocala Bald Faced Hornet nest|
Hornets found in Florida, are actually very closely related to Yellow Jacket Wasps, and have a common name of "Bald Faced Hornet" or a latin name of Dolichovespula maculata . Whatever the name, they can pack quite a wallop of a sting, and removals should be left to the pros.
Please, if you have a Bald Faced Hornet nest, don't attempt a removal yourself. Call the Stinging Insect Specialists at 1-800-343-5317 or 321-206-5100 in Central Florida.
