Identifying Large Hornets

— Written By

Do you see exceptionally large hornets flying around your home? Some residents think they are the Asia Hornets (murder hornets) that have been in the news recently. There have been no confirmed reports of the Asian Hornets in Cherokee County. What we do have are the European Hornets. They do look similar, but after looking a little closer and knowing what to look for, identification becomes a little easier. We put together a short video on social media titled Asian Hornet vs European Hornet to help with identification. If you are still unsure what you are seeing, you can call our office for help 837-2210.
