Hornets in North Carolina

If you see any giant stinging insects near your house, it’s probably a hornet. Hornets are dangerous because they can become aggressive when disturbed and cause discomfort and harm to you and your family. Watch for signs of infestation and follow preventive measures to ensure your home is hornet-free.

 

Identifying Hornets

Although the hornet is a stinging insect, it’s different from wasps and bees in some ways. One of the most significant differences is its size. Hornets are giant compared to wasps, typically measuring up to 1.5 inches long.

In addition to their appearance, they have brownish-red and yellowish-brown bodies. They also have a large head compared to their body size and alternating dark and light stripes on their abdomens. These features make hornets distinct from other similar-looking insects.

 

Signs of a Hornet Infestation

Hornets are commonly present during the warmer months between spring and fall during the warmer months. They love fruit, sugary drinks, and flowers that produce nectar. In addition to their love of sweets, hornets like protein-based foods, such as other insects. Your home can become a sanctuary for their colony once they build their nest on your property. You’ll see multiple hornets flying around and increased nest activity, with frequent traffic to and from a specific area.

 

Hornet Prevention and Treatment

Sealing potential entry points around your house, like gaps in windows, doors, and vents, is vital to prevent hornets from spreading or establishing themselves in your home. Look for food and water sources that attract hornets and get rid of them.

If you find a hornet nest, hire a professional to get it out safely. You might hurt yourself if you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s essential to call your local experts at Clegg’s for hornet control in North Carolina to get rid of hornet nests safely and effectively.
