The Pest: European Hornets . . .
The nest: European hornets build paper carton nests that are usually covered in a brown paper envelope as protection. Typically, the nests can be found in hollow trees, barns, out buildings, hollow walls of houses and attics.
The threat: European hornets are considered beneficial insects because they control many pest species. However, if their nest is located near a structure, control is warranted.
