Les Frelons consomment la sève des arbres, tout comme le nectar des fleurs ou les fruits mûrs, pour leur teneur en sucre et en protéines en complément nutritif à leur régime alimentaire. Ils capturent également beaucoup d'insectes (principalement des mouches) pour les rapporter au nid et en faire une bouillie nourrissante pour les larves.
