Swift and Safe Wasp & Hornet Removal

DeAngelo Pest Control specializes in rapid and secure hornet and wasp elimination, guaranteeing your peace of mind.

Hornets and wasps are both stinging insects, but they have distinct differences in appearance and behavior. Wasps, a broader category, include paper wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets, which are a specific type of wasp.

Hornets are generally larger than other wasps, with some species reaching up to 2 inches in length. They typically have a black or brown body with white or yellow markings. Hornets are known for their aggressive behavior when defending their nests, and their stings can be particularly painful due to their larger stingers. While they play a role in controlling other insect populations, their presence near human dwellings can pose a threat.

Wasps encompass a variety of species, but they often share similar characteristics such as slender bodies with a narrow waist and vibrant coloration. Paper wasps are recognized by their long, thin bodies and paper-like nests. Yellow jackets are identified by their yellow and black stripes and build underground nests. Wasps can be aggressive when disturbed and deliver painful stings, especially when defending their colonies.

Helpful Tips for Dealing with Hornets and Wasps:

  1. Identification: Learn to distinguish between different types of hornets and wasps. Knowing the species can help you understand their behavior and nesting habits.
  2. Avoidance: Be cautious around areas where you suspect hornets or wasps might nest, especially during the summer and early fall when they are most active. Avoid sudden movements and loud noises near nests.
  3. Protective Clothing: If you need to be in an area with active nests, wear protective clothing, including long sleeves, long pants, closed-toe shoes, and a hat with a veil.
  4. Nest Removal: If you find a nest on your property and it poses a risk, consider professional pest control services for safe removal. Do not attempt to remove a nest on your own, especially if you are allergic to stings.
  5. Food and Garbage: Keep food and garbage containers tightly sealed, as these insects are attracted to sweet and protein-rich foods. Clean up outdoor eating areas promptly.
  6. Repellents: There are commercial wasp and hornet repellents available, which can deter these insects from nesting near your home.
  7. Natural Predators: Encourage natural predators like birds and certain insects that feed on hornets and wasps. Planting flowering plants can also attract beneficial insects that may help control populations.
  8. Preventive Measures: Seal any potential entry points into your home, such as cracks and gaps in walls, roofs, and windows, to prevent these insects from entering.
