We will inspect spots where hornets are known to be so our technicians know where the nests are and if the nest is active.
We will remove the nest using professional safety precautions while you stay in your house – safely away from the hornets.
Add on our hornet control stations for control over future fly ins or in between services.
Like wasps, hornets have a segmented body and a skinny waist but are more robust and much larger in size. The most common hornet in our area, the European hornet, is a very large insect. Their bodies are brown with yellow stripes on their abdomens. European hornets have pale faces. They have two pairs of wings and six legs. European hornets have long bodies and antennae. Hornets have smooth stingers, allowing them to attack multiple times.
You call in a professional. Hornets are extremely aggressive and can sting multiple times. This is not the time for a DIY solution.

Hornets are attracted to dead animals, whatever you have in your trash, sweet items, other pests, and a few other things that could be in and around your home. An open soda can left outside can often be seen with a hornet on it.
They most certainly can – and it’s painful. Hornets have smooth stingers, allowing them to attack multiple times.
The main difference between hornets and wasps is size, with hornets being more robust and larger in size by comparison. Additionally, hornets are social insects whereas wasps can be social or solitary, depending on the species. Hornets are also more aggressive than wasps, who are only aggressive when feeling threatened. You only need to come within about 6 feet of a hornet nest for them to defend it.
Although, the likelihood of getting stung by a hornet is relatively small, when they do decide to attack, it can be fatal. The main reason a hornet’s sting is so deadly compared to other stinging insects is due to the sheer size of a hornet. Generally, hornet venom isn’t considered that toxic to humans (unless you’re allergic), but due to their size, the amount of venom they release per sting can be harmful. Hornets release more venom per sting than any other stinging insect.
