How To Identify A Hornet Infestation

Appearance - Hornets are often confused for bees but are actually a type of wasp. Bald faced hornets look similar to yellow jackets, but with large with white markings on their heads. European hornets are red/brown in color.

Behavior - The easiest way to identify a hornet problem is by finding a hornet nest along with a swarm of hornets around them. Hornet nests are made from wood which is chewed into a pulp. They are papery in appearance. It is common to see hornets building their new nests in the spring.

Why You Might Have Hornets

Hornets need a place to build their nests. Awnings, window sills, gutters, or any other piece of property that can give them a ledge to build off of can be a place to establish a hive. If your residence has any of these available to hornets, then you may be at risk for a hornet problem.

Beyond just homes, hornets also find new living space in trees. Because their nests are made of a combination of hornet saliva and wood fibers, this is the perfect place to find a home. By that point hornet control by a professional is necessary.

Reasons To Treat Your Hornet Problem Immediately

Hornet stings are painful and dangerous. The worker hornets will aggressively defend their homes. Hornets do not die after a sting like bees do, so they can continuously sting you and cause damage or even fatalities if too many attacks you or your family.

If allergic, a sting can be you into anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening situation. hornet removal is the step you must take to regain safety around your home and yard.

Most importantly, wasps and hornets can sting multiple times. Hornets are larger than wither bees or wasps. They have a long body and tend to be social insects. Many wasps species, on the other hand, are solitary.

Hornets being a social pest can be a problem for homeowners. If you disturb a nest, you can be seriously injured by hornet stings. That is why it is important to remove hornets from your home and yard immediately.

How to Spot a Hornet Problem

Spotting a hornet problem is not that hard. The best sign that you have hornets living nearby is actually seeing a hornet. Viewing a single hornet in your yard may not signify a problem. However, if you ever see a hornet in your home, you should contact a professional pest control company immediately. There may be a nest in the walls of your home, which can be a safety risk.

Other signs of a hornet problem include the following.

  1. Seeing a hornet nest in the attic, shed, garage, or under the roof of your home.
    Hornet nests are free-hanging and round. They are typically the size of a football.
  2. You hear buzzing.
