Hornet Identification and Removal
Appearance
Some common hornets we see today are the
Bald-faced hornet (or white-faced hornet)
which is black with ivory markings, the True
hornet  which is a brownish coloring with dull
orange stripes, and the yellow hornet (or aerial
nesting yellow-jacket) which is similar in
appearance to a yellow-jacket.  

Nests
Hornets attach their nests to a stationary
object and are called above-ground nests.
Bald-faced hornets nests are large and grey in
color.  They are sometimes shaped like an
upside down pear and can measure up to 2 or
more feet.  The yellow hornets construct nests
in trees and shrubs, while the true hornet will
most likely be found in hollowed out trees.

Treatment
An appropriate treatment is applied directly
into the nest. This application will effectively
kill all nest occupants. Some workers are
likely to be out foraging. A dusting of
insecticide will be applied to a small area
around the nest in order to kill stragglers as
they return to the nest.
The carbon dioxide you exhale alerts insects to your presence. If you are regarded as a
threat or if you smash an individual, a chemical danger signal will be emitted. Any
other members of the colony close enough to pick up this signal, will join in an attack
against the intruder - you. Obviously, this could be a very painful situation. It is also
possible to have and allergic reaction to the venom. Too many stings can be a danger
to anyone. Some Wasps attack an intruder's face or spray venom at the eyes, which
can cause blindness. Normal localized swelling can even be life-threatening when the
victim is stung near the throat.

Problems with Insecticides:
Pesticides can be dangerous when sprayed liberally or in poorly ventilated areas. They
should not be inhaled in large quantities or for an extended period of time. They are
also potentially flammable under certain conditions. Today's homes are well insulated
and may have central climate control systems that restrict fresh air exchange.
Filtration units do not intercept poisonous dusts used for indoor insect control.
Homeowners should be conscious of the residual affects of chemicals used within the
home. Wasp and Hornet spray is especially dangerous. The pressurizing component is
propane, a highly flammable gas that has caused house fires. The only way to safely
remove and eliminate stinging insect nests is to "Always Hire A Professional".

Warning: Nest Removal Should Never Be Attempted Without Proper Training!
The term hornet refers to large wasps.  These stinging insects have an aggressive behavior and a potent
sting.  Hornets are scavengers and can be found around trash and will feed on fruit and vegetable
gardens. Like wasps, they are quite a nuisance and tend to invade our yards due to their nature of
foraging.  Hornets can cause damage to structures due to the large nests they build in attics, under
eaves of home, etc.
