Hornet Control

Do you realize only 20 genuine species of hornets really exist? The only specie of a true hornet in the U.S. is the European hornet (Vespa crabro). As its name suggests, the European hornet is certainly an unveiled species that arrived in the U.S. from Europe and adapted to numerous areas of North America. You may distinguish the European hornet by observing it’s color and length; brown and yellow, 1 1/2 inches in length.

An additional common pest you have most likely heard about, the ‘baldfaced’ hornet, is not actually a genuine hornet. The baldfaced hornet is around an inch long and is colored black and white. Both hornets noted right now possess actions very similar to that of a yellow jacket. Even so, taking note of the particular size is the most suitable technique to distinguish the difference; hornets tend to be larger than yellow jackets.

Baldfaced hornets create aerial nests, spherical in form, around the proportions of a football or basketball and in most cases built in trees. European hornets make their nests in secluded, above-ground regions for instance empty trees, crawl spaces, porches and within wall voids. These specific nests frequently resemble ‘paper’ but they’re made out of the hornet’s spit mixed with the wood they obtained to create the nest. It is not unusual to notice hornets accumulating wood material from an unpainted building, real wood fencing, or perhaps old log.

While hornets are better known for their power to cause a painful sting, they are really very beneficial predators which help to handle a number of insects that could otherwise become pests. Hornets tend to be social so it is not likely you will come across single hornets and instead will come across a bunch at one time. They are simply really protective of the nests therefore it is important that you do not approach one if you ever find one. European hornets are actually less aggressive in comparison with yellow jackets and they take pride in sheltering their own home and may take intense actions as appropriate to defend against virtually any danger they may suspect.

We recommend seeking advice from a professional when considering any action to handle a hornet nest. Call our hornet control Culver City specialists immediately at (424)219-7337.
