Having hornets on your property can be a big problem. These tiny pests pack a big punch with their painful stings and can wreak havoc on your home, property or business. If you have a hornet problem and don’t know where to start, check out our top 3 hornet removal tips below.
- Find the hornet nest. Our first hornet removal tip is to find the hornet nest. Hornets will make their nests in small crevices or in trees. Some common places for their nests include crevices in home siding, branches of trees, large shrubs, crevices in tree bark, or even rotten logs.
- Safety first. If you choose to do your hornet removal yourself, make sure you take the proper safety precautions. This includes long-sleeved shirts and jeans, proper eye protection, gloves, closed-toe shoes and more. If this is an ongoing problem, you could even invest in a full beekeeper suit.
- Use the right products. There are a variety of pesticides that are specifically made for hornet removal. Do your research and find out what is best for your problem, while keeping environmental impact in mind.
