What Do Hornets Eat
Hornets are mostly meat-eaters, especially other insects. However, certain types of hornets also enjoy feasting on flower nectar and pollen. In fact, some hornets can even produce a bit of honey for their larvae to enjoy. However, unlike honey bees, they don’t gather pollen. Asian giant hornets are particularly large hornets that live in groups. They often wipe out entire honeybee colonies to feed on their larvae. These impressive creatures can reach up to 2 inches in length, featuring yellow heads and either yellow-black or yellow-brown stripes on their abdomen.
Hornet Control – Boca Raton
Never try to remove pesky insects on your own – it’s important to leave it to the experts. Trying to use force on hornets can be dangerous, so only a trained pest exterminator should attempt it. Don’t simply grab and throw a hornet out the window – it could injure you, others, or cause property damage.
Hornets are a large species of stinging wasps that exhibit a variety of shades. These insects can be:

How Did My House Get Hornets?
Hornets make nests in small spaces in residential siding, tree bark, and rotten logs. They can also build nests on tree branches and large, open bushes that resemble trees. In early summer, they create paper nests on tree branches and underneath the eaves. Hornets are often drawn to scraps near outdoor eating areas.
Homes with protected siding nooks and difficult-to-reach soffits provide perfect places for hornets to build nests. These areas are close to sources of food, like flowers, garbage bins, and road trash.
Adults and nests serve as the most conspicuous indicators of a hornet problem. It is not uncommon to observe hornets scraping off a thin layer of wood from structures like wooden fences, old logs, or the sides of unpainted wooden buildings, particularly during the nest-building period.

For comprehensive pest elimination and assurance that all nearby hornet exterminators have addressed the issue thoroughly, it may be necessary to undergo multiple treatment visits. Some parts of hornet treatment plans may include the following:
Education – Educating homeowners about the advantageous predatory role of hornets in controlling the populations of various insect pests is a key aspect. The pest management professional (PMP) will emphasize the importance of nest removal, as old nesting materials can be infested by other insects. Additionally, they will provide information on the locations where hornet nests have been identified and outline the approach they will take in handling them.
Chemical Treatments – Your PMP will explain the products and equipment that will be used. They may use aerosol sprays, liquid sprays from power spray equipment, or insecticide dust. These products are applied to the entrances of the nest to control hornets entering and exiting. If the nest is near areas where people gather, it’s best to do the job after dark when the hornets are less aggressive.
Non-chemical removal – If the hornet population is small and the nests are in exposed and easily accessible locations, it might be feasible to eliminate the nest without resorting to insecticides. This is most effective in the evening, involving the use of heavy plastic bags to cover and seal the nests. Afterward, the covered nest can be safely removed and disposed of. It’s crucial to note that hornets are aggressive defenders of their nests, so the disposal process should be conducted while wearing a complete protective bee suit, including a barrier protection veil.
Prevention – Keep hornets out of your home with exclusion materials. To do this, maintain well-cut and trimmed trees and landscape bushes. Bald-faced hornets are attracted to hidden areas of trees and bushes, so keep them open. Your pest control expert will explain why this is important.

Bald Faced Hornet and Other Types
Did you know there are over 20 different types of hornets worldwide? However, in the U.S., we typically only come across a few that like to make their homes in houses. Hornets, especially yellow jackets, are often mistaken for other types of wasps. But you can easily spot a hornet by their larger size and unique nesting sites.
In our line of work, our technicians frequently encounter two types of hornets: bald-faced hornets and European hornets.
Bald-faced hornets have distinct white markings on their head and thorax, and their nests are surrounded by a paper-like shell.
European hornets, on the other hand, have brownish bodies with orange identification marks. They like to build their nests in organic cavities, such as trees, tree trunks, or even cavities within houses.
So, if you ever come across these hornets, now you’ll know exactly what you’re dealing with!
We highly recommend reaching out to Green Wave Pest Solutions to arrange a consultation with a certified pest control expert. Given the aggressive nature of hornets around their nests, we conduct a thorough and complimentary assessment of your property to ensure safety and effective pest control measures.
