Compared to the more random flying patterns of pre-Hardmode Hornets, Moss Hornets act more aggressively, hovering closer to the player's position and shooting their stingers in rapid bursts. The stingers have a 1/3 (33.3%) chance to inflict the Poisoned debuff to the player for 10 seconds. In Expert mode, the chance is 1/3 (33.3%) for 20 seconds and 2/3 (66.7%) for 2–10 seconds. They cannot be destroyed with weapons and travel at about the same speed as the darts from a Dart Trap.
