Are you sure these are asian hornet's? And not european hornets or cicada killer wasps? I don't think the asian hornet has been found in the US yet.

European hornets will nest in tree cavities. Penn State has a fact sheet on these insects at http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/european-hornet
