DANGER – STAY AWAY FROM TREE WITH NEST LOCATED BEHIND BLDG 44

Date: August 31, 2021
Subject: DANGER – STAY AWAY FROM TREE WITH NEST LOCATED BEHIND BLDG 44
We have been advised of a large nest located in a tree behind building 44 and near the pond.  Please be advised this has been checked and identified as a Bald-Faced Hornets Nest.
 
Bald-faced hornets are aggressive and will attack anyone or anything that invades their space, unlike other stinging insects that may only rarely sting when they feel extremely threatened. These hornets have smooth stingers, so they can sting over and over again, whereas other stinging insects, like honeybees, are only able to attack once before their stinger falls off.  These hornets are very aggressive and can be agitated by vibrations and noise so please avoid this area until the nest can be removed.  The Association has contracted with Home Paramount to address this issue and the nest will be removed by the end of the week. More information will be provided as to when the removal will actually be completed, but in the meantime and during removal please avoid this area.
