Hornets Nest B2689

There is only 1 item left in stock.
Hornets nests are entirely exterior; trees, shrubs, under decks, and high in the eaves. They construct a “football” or upside down teardrop-shaped nest from gray paper. Hornets, as do wasps and yellow jackets, actually make this paper themselves by chewing on tiny slivered wood. The young are hatched and food is stored in the nest’s center or “core” of hexagonal (or six sided) cells. This bee hive was cut from the wall and was hung by a binder twin. Measuring H 12 X L 12 x D 8
