I found a link for you to check out

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bald-faced_hornet

On here, it says it's the only Hornet in North America, but wouldn't be considered a Hornet by European standards?
Either way, it's got a nasty sting!! I leaaned back on one in my car years ago and it got me in the small of my back. I couldn't wear anything around my waist for days
It hurt/burned all the way from the small of my back through to my tummy. And it was only one! I couldn't imagine if a nest attacked you!
