Monsters in Relation:
Vespoid Queen, Hornetaur
Vespoids are insect-like monsters that inhabit the land.
They are known to be a nuisance for hunters, due to their stings that cause hunters to flinch, resulting in them being exposed to any further attacks. Their stingers are loaded with a neuro-toxin that can paralyze foes.
They are normally placed near rocky-walls and caves and found almost everywhere.

First JP Appearance:
Monster Hunter Freedom 2 / Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
An enormous, wasp-like insectoid with a poisonous stinger that paralyzes prey. Easily damaged, there are rarely any usable parts left to harvest from them once they are killed.
Having a low resilience to most forms of damage, Vespoids will generally disintegrate when struck with a blow from a relatively powerful weapon.
They can be poisoned to prevent their body from shattering when killed.
When poison is applied the smaller and regular-sized Vespoids will die instantly.
Even if poison is not applied, there still exists a slim chance for successful carve, if the body doesn't shatter.
They appear to be related to the Bnahabra, also an insect-like monster found in Monster Hunter 3.
