What Are Hornets?

Hornet Pest Control

Hornets are a specific breed of wasps that live in large organized colonies. Hornets are larger than wasps and an orange-red color. Hornets like to build their nest in high areas like an attic, treetop, sheds, garages, under roofs, and any area raised from the ground. They like to eat things that are sweet like fruits and fizzy drinks and also eat protein. Their protein comes from eating other insects and animals which is why they act as a natural pest controller. If a hornet is to sting, its venom can be deadly. It can be harmful to most humans depending on the amount of venom released but can kill off other insects and animals. 

How To Get Rid Of Hornets?

There are a few ways to get rid of hornets. If it is just one hornet, you can simply use a fly-swatter. If you find a whole nest around your home you want to soak the nest with pesticides. It is best to either do it at dusk or dawn when all the hornets have returned home and are less active. You should leave it soaked for a few days to ensure they have all died before removing it. You can also trap them in a bucket filled with sugar, water, vinegar, and mild dish soap and place it near their nest. They will eventually fly in, get trapped, and drown. The best option though is to hire a pest professional. They can help you find the nest, get rid of it, and ensure they do not return.
