Like other pests, the main reason hornets are infesting your home or office is because of access to food and shelter. Hornets are often attracted to sweet foods like fruits or flowers in your garden. However, if you have a lot of food regardless of its taste, you could be attracting hornets to the surrounding areas of your home.
Hornets will most likely create their nest inside walls, sheds, roofs, and other vacant spaces in your home. Not only does this give them easy access to the food and your garden but it also protects them from harsh conditions of the outside environment. While this is hard to avoid, this can be the reason why you’re experiencing a hornet infestation.
Hornets are known to be a stinging insect that have a painful sting and cause severe allergic reactions. While one or two hornets shouldn't cause too much of an issue, leaving an infestation to grow can lead to swarms of them in the area. With the increase in number, you’re more likely to get stung and have a reaction to their stingers.
While not as big of a concern when compared to other pests, hornets can still cause food contamination. As an insect, they can easily gain access to food in your home and cause contamination to your family’s food supply. If you’re not careful, these infestations may actually lead to infections or illnesses.
Though hornets do offer the benefit of eating other insects in your garden, they’re quite harmful to the ecosystem at large. It only takes a few hornets to wipe out an entire colony of honey bees which can be detrimental to the health of your garden and plants. Additionally, while harming the growth of your plants due to the removal of bees, they’ll also eat the crops and flowers you plant causing further damage.
When it comes to hornet control and exterminations and any other pest control service, a simple spray treatment or nest removal can aggravate the hornets and cause them to attack. This can lead to quite a few injuries and stings if not done correctly. At Quality Affordable Pest Control, we carefully inspect bushes, trees, and other places that may be inhabited by hornets. Once we’ve isolated the location, we can carefully and swiftly treat the hornet's nest to rid your home of these pests. With professional tools, treatments, and protective gear, we’re able to exterminate the hornets without putting yours and our health at risk.
A: After the initial assessment of the hornet infestation and hornet identification, exterminators will treat the area causing the hornets to die swiftly. Depending on the size of the infestation, the entire extermination process can take around 1 to 2 days to eradicate all the hornets. While a few hornets may fly back to the nest after the extermination, without the queen hornet they too will die in a matter of time.
A: In general, hornet control and extermination treatments should last about 2 months. However, while the old hornet's nest is unlikely to cause a reinfestation if your home still has a viable source of food for other hornets it’s possible for a reinfestation to occur.
A: According to studies, the best time to treat a hornet infestation is during nighttime. This is due to the fact that most hornets are out scavenging for food and supplies during the day. This means that you’d only be treating half of the hornet population in the morning at best. By treating and conducting your hornet removal treatment at night you are boosting the effectiveness of the treatment as you’re more likely to kill them all in one go.
A: There are studies that say hornets may have some benefits in controlling other insects and pests from entering your home. However, hornets themselves are considered dangerous pests as they can cause allergic reactions to humans and contribute to food contamination. If you see a hornet in your home, even if it's just a handful, you should call an exterminator and request a hornet removal treatment before the infestation gets out of hand. The sooner you get rid of the hornets' nest, the better.
A: Yes, it is. While there are some over-the-counter sprays and treatments that you can apply yourself, hornets can be quite aggressive when provoked. In America alone, around 1000 people have died in the past few years due to hornets' stings and allergic reactions to them. While this may not be a common case, it’s best to leave the hornet exterminating to the professionals to ensure your safety.
If you’re concerned about a possible wasp or hornet infestation, it's best to call Quality Affordable Pest Control immediately. While one or two hornets may seem harmless, there’s sure to be a nest filled with these pests nearby. With their aggressive nature, it’s not advisable for non-professionals to treat and remove a hornets' nest in their own home.
