Do You Have a Hornet Problem?
Learn the Key Characteristics of Hornets and How to Identify an Infestation
Hornets are one of the largest, difficult and dangerous wasps to control. Their nests look like inverted tear-drops and contain thousands of aggressive hornets. Hornets, like yellow jackets, can mobilize their entire nest to attack. Avoid killing a hornet near its nest – the distress signal could trigger the remaining hornets. Perfume, or other chemicals that might be confused with pheromones, can also trigger a group attack. A hornet sting is painful and its toxicity varies according to species.
What Does It Eat?
Bald-faced hornets feed on other insects and flower nectar.
Where Does It Hide?
Baldfaced hornets are active in the daytime and spend the evenings in their nests.
What Can It Do to Me?
Baldfaced hornets are stinging insects. If the nest is located near a structure or close to the ground they may pose a hazard to anyone who accidentally or intentionally disturbs the nest. They will sting aggressively when disturbed.
