Hornet Life Cycle

There is only one native Hornet in the UK which is the European Hornet (Vespa Crabro), however, there are increasing species of non-native Hornet such as the Yellow legged Asian Hornet now appearing in the UK.
The Hornet nest starts life in the spring by the queen, the position of the nest varies but most likely will be located in a dry and undisturbed place such as loft spaces or out buildings.
After eggs are laid it takes between 5-8 days before hatching, when the larvae then undergo five stages over the next two weeks. Through this period the queen feeds the larvae protein rich food that consists of insects.
After this period the larvae will spin a silk cap over its cell entrance and over the next two weeks will transform into an adult Hornet worker.
When newly formed adult Hornets have hatched they commandeer all duties from the queen apart from egg laying. As Hornet numbers increase, workers expand the size of the nest to accommodate the growing colony.
In late summer the queen begins to produce reproductive females and males. These reproductive Hornets will not nest build, forage for food or carry out any other worker duties.
In the autumn male and female Hornets leave the nest to mate, once mating has finished the male life cycle comes to an end and dies. The new fertilized Queens hibernate over winter, emerging from hibernation in the spring to begin the life cycle again by building her own nest.
