The flat face has 2 contiguous (so near that they touch) black triangular markings meeting medially. Females of the social species are 8-14 mm in length and males slightly smaller. Spiders of the solitary species are normally larger, ranging from 6-23 mm in length.

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:54:30 -0800The Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia), colloquially known as the yak-killer hornet,is the world's largest hornet, native to temperate and tropical Eastern Asia. They prefer to live in low mountains and forests, while almost completely avoiding plains and high-altitude climates. V. mandarinia creates nests by digging, co-opting pre-existing tunnels dug by rodents, or occupying spaces near rotted plant roots.It feeds primarily on larger insects and honey from honey bee colonies. Some dimensions of this hornet are a body length of 45 mm (1.8 in), a wingspan around 75 mm (3.0 in), and stinger length of 6 mm (0.24 in) which injects a large amount of potent venom. This particular nest was of 5 feet height..
