Bald-faced 'Hornets'
Bald-faced ‘Hornets’

Are actually related to Yellowjackets. These wasps exclusively build aerial hives either in bushes, trees, or on buildings.


These wasps prefer to build their nests in the ground or within structures while aerial hives are rare.

European Hornets
European Hornets

Originating from Europe, these hornets found their way to North America in the 1800’s and are the only true hornet here. They prefer to build their hives in the hollows of trees or inside of buildings.

Hornet & Wasp Hives in Trees

Another common location for hornet hives that we have to remove. Typically if they are more than 30 feet up in a tree they are not as much of a nuisance but in situations with allergies it is best to be safe and have it removed.

Even though these hornet hives can be difficult to remove we have not had to walk away without removing one in our 13+ years of service.

Hornet & Wasp Hives in Bushes

Sometimes they are obvious but often they are hidden and remain unnoticed until the hive is large enough and the number of hornets is difficult to miss. These are the most common location for hornet hive removals.

Options for Hornet & Wasp Removal

  1. CHEMICAL-FREE HIVE REMOVAL:  We take the hive, Queen and all of the pupae with us.  We destroy them unless honeybees.
  2. PESTICIDE APPLICATION: This leaves the hive in place. We spray the hive, attempting to get inside the hive and killing the Queen.  This is less costly, however, no guarantees.
  3. COMBO of BOTH: This is where we remove the hive and then spray where the hive was; branch, wall or inside a structure so when the hunters return they are repelled or killed upon contact.

The situation is with a normal hornet nest removal, there are hunters that were out during the removal process.  If we take the hive with a chemical-free removal then when the hunters come back they hang out on the branch or the part of the structure where the hive WAS.  Sometimes the Hornets will even begin to build a paper hive again.  There isn’t a Queen so there cannot be any further reproduction (eggs produced).  If we do a hive removal (#1) then sometimes people get nervous when they see a large number of hunters where the hive was located.  As a result, we decided to come up with a strategy through our pest control license to apply a pesticide (when requested) to the location where there would be a concern.  The residual effect of the pesticide would speed up the process of even the stragglers being destroyed.

Regardless if you want chemical-free or pesticide solutions, we can help rid you of the stinging insects quickly.
