Frank Laux, neighbor, nature enthusiast and friend of children, found this amazing bald faced hornet’s nest on his property and was inspired to donate it to us for the Nature Center we are beginning to build in our Play House. He installed it on Saturday. There are two things to know:
1. Bald Faced Hornets are among the nastiest and most territorial of the stinging insects. You should help children understand that if they ever see a nest that looks like this they should move away and if the hornets come after them they should run and get inside a house or a car quickly. The hornets can and will sting repeatedly. Additionally, they will come as a tribe, not just individually.
2. This nest is not populated. These hornets only use a nest for one season. They will build a new one each year. This nest is a wonderful part of nature and a good way to safely study the home of these nasty insects. However, it is fragile and will not hold up to handling. It will certainly not survive if you allow kids to throw things at it, or bat at it with sticks. Please supervise appropriately and don't allow them to do something that in different circumstances could be disastrous. ... See MoreSee Less
