Greater Banded Hornet nest

posted in: Fauna, Videography | 0

“Unlike the more common Lesser Banded Hornet which builds a beautifully patterned nest LINK, the Greater Banded Hornet builds nests underground or in concealed cavities.

“I came across this nest in a wall cavity, with hornets continuously emerging from and returning to the nest. While taking the video, I noticed one of them positioned at the nest entrance, rapidly fanning its wings to cool the nest, while another one stood protectively on guard – as shown in the video below.
