Baldfaced Hornets

Bald-face hornets are mostly black in the body and white in the face, with a few white pieces on their body. Their wings are dark brown but translucent. They look similar yellow jackets, except for their coloration, because they are technically more closely related to yellowjackets and wasps than other hornets. They get their "hornet" name because of their size and aggression. They are usually between 1/2 and 3/4 inches long.
