Hornet Control

Are you aware only twenty true species of hornets really exist? The only real specie of a genuine hornet within the U.S. is the European hornet (Vespa crabro). As its title indicates, the European hornet happens to be an unveiled species that came to the U.S. from Europe and has now adapted to several parts of the Country. It’s possible to recognize the European hornet by noticing the color and length; brown and yellow, one and a half in. long.

Yet another well-known pest you’ve more than likely heard of, the ‘baldfaced’ hornet, is not actually an authentic hornet. This unwanted pest is typically an inch in length and black and white in color. The two hornets described at this time reveal tendencies similar to a yellow jacket. Size is essentially the most effortlessly regarded variation given that yellow jackets are smaller than hornets.

When you find an aerial nest that’s circular and as big as a basketball (often found in trees) you may have found a baldfaced hornet nest. Should you notice a nest within a hollow tree, within a wall, attic or around the deck, it is very likely a European hornet nest. Hornet nests are constructed of paper-like matter put together by the hornets combining their saliva together with wood they gather. Throughout the nest-building period, it might not be abnormal to observe a hornet scraping away a thin wood layer from a wood made fence, an old log or the side of an unpainted wooden building.

Hornets are known for the incredibly painful sting but actually help keep control of other sorts of pests all over your property from becoming a hassle inside your house. Even so, hornets are social insects, so they will assertively guard their nest from any intruders. Although it is not as hostile as yellow jackets, the baldfaced hornet, and to a lesser degree, the European hornet, promptly and assertively protect their colony when suspecting any threat.

We advise seeking the guidance of a professional when considering any action to stop a hornet nest.
