Hornets Nest
A hornets nest is much like a common wasps nest, made from paper. The paper is a result of the hornet harvesting wood fibres from trees and even wooden furniture. The wood fibres are then chewed and mixed with the hornets saliva to create a paper like material that is used in the construction of the nest. The hornets nest will be constructed in places such as a hollow tree, wall cavity, chimney, loft space, eaves of a house etc. The hornets may even use the same place year after year but with a new nest being built each time. The nest will have a single entrance hole at the bottom and will contain many cells for the young to develop in. The nest is first constructed by the queen who will create a few cells to begin with. The queen hornet will lay an egg in each cell that will produce an infertile working hornet. Once the working hornet has matured, it will help build and grow the nest as well as gathering food and looking after the young.
