Hornets are a species of social wasp found across the United States. Only young queens survive the coldest months by finding safe and warm areas indoors or under tree bark. In the spring, workers are born and they begin to expand the hive. These extremely aggressive stinging fliers can find their way under decks, under porches, and in outdoor sheds. If you see signs of hornet presence on your property, call your Critter Control of Kansas City office today for your local pest control. We can help remove hornets from your property in a safe and effective manner.
Hornet problems are most noticeable during the fall when hornets are notorious for disrupting outdoor activities, especially when food or drinks are available. One way to implement hornet control is to keep food or drinks covered while outdoors, which will help to get rid of hornets when they are looking for food. It is important to take extra caution when shooing away hornets to prevent stings or other hornet problems. It is best to contact your local Critter Control hornet control specialist to safely provide hornet removal.
Common Hornet Problems
Hornets can often make their way into homes and other buildings. These pests often construct their nests in sheds, porches, or hanging from roof eaves. They'll then enter homes through gaps in house siding and open windows or doors. Unfortunately, you may even see hornets in your attic or spot a hornet nest in your wall.
Hornets are very aggressive and are territorial when it comes to defending their nests. With that said, their presence on lawns and in parks is dangerous. Stings from these pests normally result in redness, swelling, and pain. However, some individuals may be allergic to hornet venom and have adverse, life-threatening reactions.
In order to make lawns less favorable to hornets, property owners should keep their grass short and trim bushes and trees with regularity. Additionally, inspecting porches and other common nesting areas, on occasion, helps homeowners catch infestations before they grow out of control.
