I had a hornet the size of my thumb in my garage. I killed it using wasp and hornet spray. Is this an invasive species? I've never seen a hornet/ wasp which was this big in Ohio. DO I need to worry that there is a nest in my home? We recently had the house exposed due to some major construction, so it could be in my rafters.

It may have been a European hornet. Please see the FactSheet below.
