Hornets & Wasps

Hornets and Wasps are useful insects. But when they make their homes in or around yours, they can be a serious safety hazard.

The truth about Hornets & Wasps

Hornets and Wasps can pose a threat to you and your family. Let’s learn a little more about these pests.

  • Hornets will aggressively attack and sting any intruder threatening or disturbing the nest.

  • Some hornet nests may measure over 2 feet in length and contain hundreds of workers. The nests last for one year.

  • Paper wasps have a round shaped, upside-down paper comb nest that resembles an umbrella, lending to these wasps’ nickname, "umbrella wasps".

  • Most paper wasp nests are located in exposed areas beneath soffits, in the corners of windows, under awnings, under porches and beneath decks.

  • Paper wasps often enter attics through holes in the soffits, attic vent screens and underneath shingles.

  • European hornets will nest inside the voids of buildings, usually in an attic or chimney. Nests may also be constructed on the sides of buildings.

Show your home some love. Protect it from Hornets and Wasps.
