How Long Do Hornets Live?

Answer

The hornet belongs to the wasp family Vespidae, and is the largest social wasp in Britain. Measuring between 30 and 40mm long, these formidable looking creatures have quite a scary reputation, but are actually said to be quite docile creatures that attack when defending their nest. Hornet queens live for around one year, while workers survive for 3 to 4 weeks.
