"This bald faced hornets nest reached around 5 feet in height. These are rare to see and are known as 'stove pipe' nests. It often happens when something or someone knocks down a nest without killing it. The queen will rebuild a bit lower and they will bridge the paper up the wall to the soffit. These nests can have 2,000-3,000 hornets in them. Bald faced hornets are very aggressive and can sting repeatedly."
