New Hornet’s Nest Takes Shape

May 2022, Scioto County, Ohio. This is a new bald-face hornets (Dolichovespula maculata) nest.  It contains only the new queen, which was hatched late last summer and survived the winter.  The long tube on the bottom is the only entrance and provides some protection against predators and parasites.  Once the first workers hatch, all female, they will chew off the tube and begin to enlarge the nest while the queen stays home and lays eggs
