Basic Identifiers:

Hornets are of a subgroup of wasp. With similar skin and wings, but hornets have a slightly larger waist and similar skin and wings. They tend to have a reddish-brown head and thorax. Normally hornets won’t be found around sweet nectar, saps, or sweeter foods and proteins.

Why Do I Have Hornets?

Hornets are very common in our region. Hornets have the ability to build insidious nests or hives. This is frequent in the summertime, but hornets can also be a problem in the spring. A hornet’s aim is to find food. If they invade your space, that is what they are trying accomplish.

In the spring, when the queen hornet emerges from her overwintering site, there is a flurry of activity. They are trying to locate their new nesting location to develop their populations. It is in late summer when the hornets get particularly aggressive, because they are trying to get enough food to survive the winter. At any rate, hornets in a home or on a property is a problem.

How Do I Get Rid of Them?

Do-it-yourself methods are possible, but are not as effective. This is especially true in eradicating stinging insects. Additionally, it can be quite dangerous. Multiple stings are usually the result of many home remedies tried. Products used to kill off hornets often have dangerous pesticides in them, harmful to humans and pets.

The best option is always to contact a professional. Here at Perseverance Pest Control,  our aim is to eliminate the source of an infestation efficiently and completely. Don’t wait until the problem gets worse.
