      I remember exactly when this thing is so damn fragile and hard to obtain their material whenever I slashed them in MHFU. Same thing as Vespoid.

        easy way to kill them if you have the Iceborne expansion pass is to use the grapple thing you get from it. hit them twice with it, then hit them 5 times with the capture net, works every time for me

          I've found that blast pods and scatter pods usually break the hornetaurs, if you're looking to farm. Also, the sweep attack on the lance seems to have a chance of leaving them intact to carve instead of breaking them.

            Use the entomologist skill... mine is at 2 and I get 2 out of 3 carcasses to carve the real problem is not getting monster fluid and getting inner wings

              For those looking to farm the high rank version, they spawn in area 4 of the Rotten Vale instead of area 3.

                Black Beatles you come across in the rotten vale. Like the Vespida, it is best to use your sling to take them out or they will "break" and you can not look the shell we all want for the Odogaron set

                  Looking for hornetaurs purely for my Odogaron set, anyone find any sort of clue as to how to obtain Hornetaurs?
