Hornets are born from the flesh of the horse

General Attributes

The hornet is found in some medieval encyclopedias. Hornets (crabro) are born from the rotting flesh of horses (cabalus). They do not have kings as bees do, and produce useless honey.

There is considerable overlap in the descriptions of the hornet and the wasp.
