Jacqueline Serrano with hornet

Jacqueline Serrano poses for a selfie-style photo while holding a large orange and black hornet with a pair of forceps to her side with her right hand.

Jacqueline Serrano, Ph.D., holds a northern giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia) in a cold room with forceps. This hornet was from the first nest that was located and eradicated in Washington state in 2020. Serrano supplied lures that helped capture live hornets, which led WSDA to the nest. Serrano is now working to identify new attractants for the hornets, including pheromones.
