Bald-Faced Hornets Attack Camera, Sting Man in the Head, and One Hornet is Found Dead on the Sidewalk

Describing multiple events ... person that was stung (described below video) was minding his own business watering the lawn and weeding ...

Bald-Faced Hornets are especially vicious and aggressive -- watch them attack this camera.

Bald-Faced Hornets are black and white. They have no yellow color. Their faces are white. If a person gets within 12 feet of a Bald-Faced Hornet's next, it is almost guaranteed that the person will be stung at least once and maybe multiple times.

Bald-Faced Hornets are so fast they can sting without being detected -- at least not enough to get a description of what actually stung the victim.

Swelling from two simultaneous stings from a Bald-Faced Hornet. One sting was at the top of the forehead and one sting was at the top of the crown of the head. The swelling showed up the next morning. Pain was intense, and caused the heart to race -- tachycardia. The victim was pulling some weeds about 10 feet away from the nest -- unaware of the location of the nest.

A Bald-Faced Hornet is one aggressive hornet. This is a Bald-Faced Hornet that was found dead on a sidewalk in Arlington Heights, Illinois in September 2013.
