What Do Hornets Eat
Hornets are primarily carnivorous, preying on other insects. However, certain hornet species also supplement their diet with flower nectar and pollen. Interestingly, some hornets even produce a small amount of honey for their larvae, although they do not gather pollen like honey bees do. One notable species is the Asian giant hornet, known for its large size and colony lifestyle. These hornets have been observed wiping out entire honeybee colonies to consume their larvae. Recognizable by their body length of up to 2 inches, Asian giant hornets possess distinctive yellow heads and either yellow-black or yellow-brown stripes on their abdomen.

How Did My House Get Hornets?
Hornets form near small nooks and crannies in residential siding, tree bark, and rotten logs. But, hornets nests can be found on the tree branches and large open, tree-like bushes. In early summer, in the tree branches and underneath the eaves, they build paper nests. Scraps near outdoor eating areas are often attracted to the hornets.
Homes with shielded outdoor siding nooks and hard-to-reach soffits help in providing ideal spots for making nests for hornets. These areas are within a range of sources of food, such as flowers, waste bins, and road garbage.
Adults and nests are clear indications of a hornet problem. Hornets often scrape away wood from fences, old logs, or unpainted wooden buildings during nest construction.

Hornet Treatment Parkland
Achieving complete control and the elimination of pests in my proximity may entail more than one treatment visit during the hornet extermination process. Some parts of hornet treatment plans may include the following:
Education – Educating homeowners about the advantageous role of hornets in controlling insect pests, while emphasizing the necessity of nest removal due to potential infestation by other insects. Providing information on the location of hornet nests and outlining proper handling procedures.
Chemical Treatments – Your PMP will offer comprehensive explanations regarding the products and equipment to be utilized. Options may include ready-to-use aerosol sprays, liquid sprays from power spray equipment, or insecticide dust. These applications are targeted at the nest entrances to control the movement of hornets in and out of the nest. If the nest is situated in close proximity to areas frequently visited by groups of people and the majority of hornets are inside, it is advisable to carry out this task after dark when they exhibit reduced aggression.
Non-chemical removal – To remove nests without insecticides, consider the following: If the hornet population is small and the nests are exposed and easy to reach, removal may be feasible. It is recommended to perform this task in the evening. Use heavy plastic bags to cover and seal the nests, making sure to dispose of them properly afterwards. Keep in mind that hornets are aggressive and fiercely protect their nests. Therefore, when handling the nests, it is essential to wear a fully protective bee suit and a barrier protection veil.
Prevention – Your PMP will teach you how to keep hornets out of your home using exclusion materials. It is essential to maintain well-trimmed trees and landscape bushes to discourage hornets from nesting. Specifically, bald-faced hornets are attracted to hidden areas of trees and bushes where they create their nests.

Bald Faced Hornet and Other Types
There are over 20 different species of hornets worldwide, but only a few are commonly found in houses in the U.S. Hornets, particularly yellow jackets, are often mistaken for other types of wasps. However, hornets are usually larger than other wasps and can be identified by their distinctive and often large nests.
The two types of hornets that our technicians encounter most frequently are bald-faced hornets and European hornets.
Bald-faced hornets have white markings on their head and thorax and build nests with a papery shell.
European hornets, on the other hand, are brownish with orange markings and build their nests in natural cavities. They can be found on trees, tree trunks, or inside houses.

Removal of Hornet Nests
For effective Hornets treatment, it is important to safely locate the hive and administer Stryker Wasp Hornet Killer directly into the nest to eliminate any fleeing Hornets. This task should only be undertaken by trained professionals due to the associated risks. We strongly advise against attempting this yourself.
To ensure our safety when treating Hornets, we take appropriate protective measures as these insects may attempt to sting us in defense of their hive.
In order to prevent the formation of new Hornet nests, we may apply Sylo Insecticide around your property after removing the existing nest.
