Hornets, like other insects and animals, have an important role they play in the environment. These insects help to pollinate plants and to rid other insects such as mites, spiders, and flies.

Hornets usually eat live insects. Some other large wasps are sometimes referred to as hornets such as the Bald-faced hornet which visits flowers, especially in late summer, and can be minor pollinators. In the fall, yellowjackets may be attracted to human foods and food wastes.

Many bees and wasps do pollinate, some to a greater degree than others See this site: http://pollinator.com/identify/whatsbuzzin.htm. I found great info on this website; almost all are beneficial in some way. Many wasps predate on garden pests, such as the tomato hornworm.

The collective nouns for hornets are a "swarm" or a "nest" of hornets.
