What to Know About Aggressive NJ Hornets

The Baldfaced and the European hornets are the two varieties encountered in New Jersey.

These stinging insects can pose a threat to you and your loved ones, especially if you have children, the elderly, or allergic individuals on the premises. 

Here’s a quick look at some essential questions you might have regarding hornets and what residential pest control measures we can use to effectively deal with them.

Do You Have Hornets?

Hornets do their best to build their nests where they are not likely to be disturbed, such as in attics, trees, balconies, lofts, and so on. The typical nest will resemble an old, dull white/grey football, depending on the type of wood they’ve used. 

Are Hornets Dangerous?

While the average nest will have between 200 and 500 inhabitants, some colonies contain more than a thousand. Generally speaking, hornets will only attack when they feel threatened.

Because hornet attacks can cause significant injuries to people and pets, it’s better to avoid them wherever possible.

How Can You Eliminate a Hornet’s Nest?

Hornets, unlike wasps and bees, can be persistently aggressive, more so since they do not lose their stings after each attack. Because of this, it’s not advisable to try and get rid of a nest on your own. 

How Can We Help?

There are different tools and residential pest control procedures that a professional pest service provider may employ to help you sort out your situation, but you need to be careful when making your final determination.
