Version 2.77


White-faced hornets live in large colonies of 50 to 2000 individuals. They often build aerial nests on or around human dwellings. Stinging incidents often occur when man accidentally disturbs a nest while engaged in yardwork or house repairs. The white-faced hornet is rare in Europe, but is of great importance in the North American continent.

IgE-mediated reactions often present as large local reactions with swelling extending from the sting site. They sometimes include anaphylactic reactions with common symptoms such as urticaria, flushing and angioedema as well as more serious respiratory and cardiovascular symptoms. The reactions can be fatal. Reactions can be both of the immediate and/or delayed type. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, Whitefaced Hornet
