If you see hornets or a nest around your property call a professional right away to deal with them properly!
Did you know that only twenty genuine species of hornets really exist? The only true hornet type within the U.S. is the European hornet (Vespa crabro). As its name suggests, it is actually an unveiled species which arrived at the U.S. from Europe and adapted to a number of areas in the U.S.. It is possible to distinguish them by looking at its coloring and size; brown and yellow, 1 1/2″ long.
Another typical pest you’ve most likely come across, the ‘bald-faced’, is not really an authentic type. The bald-faced is about an inch in length and it is colored white and black. Both described at this time possess actions much like that of a yellow jacket. Size is probably the most easily acknowledged variation seeing as yellow jackets are small compared to them.
In case you come across an aerial nest that is round and as large as a basketball (commonly detected in trees) you may have uncovered a bald-faced type colony. If you happen to see a nest in a hollowed out tree, in a wall, attic space or on the deck, it’s more than likely a European type nest. These specific nests generally resemble ‘paper’ however they are made out of their saliva mixed with the wood they collected to create their nest. It isn’t really unusual to notice them collecting wood material from a structure that does not have paint, wood fence, or perhaps old log. Should you come upon a nest at any time that puts your home, family or property at risk, call our professionals and we can deal with them safely.
