Hornets and wasps are both stinging insects of the Vespidae order, distant cousins of the ant. Like bees, hornets and wasps tend to set up their nests in trees under eaves, behind siding and in other unwanted locations around the home. Hornets and wasps are generally much more aggressive than bees, however, and pose a real risk to humans. In fact, thousands of people are killed every year in the United States due to allergic reactions to hornets and wasps.

Wasps and hornets can both deliver a painful sting. They’re also aggressive insects that sting when they feel threatened or when someone approaches their nest. Unlike bees, wasps and hornets can also sting multiple times. In addition, their preferred environments frequently place them in close contact with humans. All of these factors mean that you may want to schedule a wasp or hornet removal at the first sign of wasps or hornets.

Hornets are a species of wasps that cover most of the world. They are predators that feed on bees, flies, and other large insects. Their aggressive behavior leads most homeowners to seek hornet removal services at the first sighting of hornets around their home. Wasps and hornets follow the same basic behavioral patterns. They all build nests of some type. Hornets and wasps that live socially build large colonies similar to ant mounds or beehives. Solitary wasps build small nests to provide protection from the elements and a place for breeding. Most species create their nests by chewing wood fibers into a paper-like substance used to build the nest. A wasp or hornet removal will usually focus on eliminating these nests.

Ways to Avoid Hornet’s Nest

You can’t completely ensure that you will never have a hornets nest flourish in your yard, however taking a note on these few helpful tips to lessen the chances of hornets in your yard. First of all, hornets feed off of food such as rotting fruit cores, garbage, and recycling bins. If any of these are in your yard, out in the open, it will increase the chance of a hornet colony sprouting in your yard. Also, if you see a hornet in your yard do not swat it and try to kill it. Walking away is much more beneficial, because when you kill the hornet, a chemical is released to attract other hornets to the area.

Wasps and hornets are found throughout the world but do best in moderate to warm climates where they have an extended breeding season, like Louisiana. They prefer to build their nests in dry places that are protected from extreme temperatures. This makes your awnings, exterior stairwells, and crawl spaces an attractive location for them. Nests in these areas pose a high degree of danger for children and pets and make professional hornet removal by Trapper J a necessity.

How to Deal with a Hornet Swarm

The easiest way to deal with a swarm of angry hornets is to take care of their hives before they have the chance to grow. Getting rid of hornet hives in their infancy can solve problems before they have a chance to start, but be careful, because even small hives contain hornets that can attack.

Hornet queens also like to build their hives in protected dark areas such as roof overhangs. Placing a low-watt light bulb in areas where hornets tend to build can discourage them. Take care when planting boxwoods and firs next to your home because they make great environments for hornets and other stinging insects.

Hornets are a big fan of over-ripe fruit and other sweets. Also keep garbage in a sealed container to eliminate the temptation for hornets. Placing hornet traps next to these prime feeding locations can be a good step in dealing with a hornet problem. If you do find that they have built a hornet nest already just call Trapper J and he can safely get rid of hornets!
