Hornets are a member of the yellow jacket family, but have a black body with white markings and are about ¾ inch in length. Their nests are made of chewed wood and are enclosed in an envelope. Hornets are known for their aggressive behavior when disturbed and their painful stings. If a nest is found high in a tree or in a remote location that is not a danger to humans or animals nearby, then it should remain untouched.
