Typical Pest

Although not a genuine type, the baldfaced hornet (Dolichovespula maculata) is covered right here since the majority of individuals commonly refer to it as a hornet. This unwelcome pest is commonly one inch in length and black and white in color. Both of the species discussed at this timeshare behaviors much like a yellow jacket. Size is probably the most effortlessly identified difference seeing as yellow jackets are smaller than them.

Baldfaced hornets construct aerial nests, round in shape, around the size of a basketball or football, and normally erected in trees. European hornets will make their nests in exotic, above-ground areas such as attics, hollow trees, verandas, and within the wall voids. These types of nests oftentimes appear to be ‘paper’ but they are built from their saliva blended with the wood they collected to create the nest. It’s actually not abnormal to observe this pest gathering wood from a structure that doesn’t have paint, real wood fence, or perhaps old log.

Benefits Of Hornets

While they are known for their potential to cause a distressing sting, they are actually very useful predators and help to stop an assortment of bugs that can otherwise grow to be pest infestations. They are actually sociable therefore it is not likely you will observe independent hornets and instead will come across a bunch at one time. They’re really protective of the nests therefore it’s crucial that you never approach one if you ever come across one. European hornets are less assertive as compared to yellow jackets and they are proud of guarding their own nest and can take intense measures when necessary to fend off any risk they might predict.

What To Do?

Don’t try to handle the removal yourself! Especially when you don’t know how to dispose of them properly or you are not trained by a professional.

Even if you get a stain in your clothes or you have a banana or an apple, they will be attracted to it and might actually harm you.
