Yellow hornet is sometimes referred to as the aerial yellow jacket. Yellow hornets build rather large nests, often hanging from branches or on eaves of houses. In general, they sting only when their nest is disturbed. Most yellow hornets are found in the near Arctic regions in Asia, Europe and North America. They are not particularly attracted by food and are not often in contact with man.

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. Both immediate and delayed type reactions can occur. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
