Schedule An Inspection

Hornets 101

Hornets are much larger than bees and reach about 24 mm long. They have yellow and black stripes on their body and have a very distinct look. These pests are dangerous and extremely aggressive. If they feel that someone is coming too near to their nest or them, they will attack in numbers. Hornets bite and sting and if you are stung it will be a painful experience. You will most often find a hornets nest in a hollow tree or anywhere with dryness. They will damage trees and shrubs which they use for their nests and to receive nourishment from the sap. Hornets also feed on other insects such as grasshoppers, flies, and crickets. When it comes to their colony, there could be over 300 hornets in one place. Do not plug up their entrance or spray insecticides, this will cause them to become aggravated. If you believe you have a hornet infestation, you should contact a pest professional as soon as you can.

Signs of an Infestation

If you have a hornet infestation it should be pretty obvious. The number one thing you will notice is a large presence of these insects roaming around. If there are a large number of these pests, there will also be a nest nearby. You want to be very cautious not to get near the nest or the hornets because they are very quick to get defensive. If they feel as though they are being threatened, they will attack you in numbers. Nests can be found in a dry wooded area possibly in a hollow tree or under playground equipment. If you believe you have an infestation, we recommend you contact a pest professional to safely get the hornets out of your way.
