Hornet Removal & Extermination - Covering All of Massachusetts

Hornet Removal

Hornets are the most dangerous type of stinging insect and do not like to be disturbed.

Unlike bees and wasps, they can release a hormone that alerts other hornets of danger. Hornets look a lot like a wasp but have a thicker waist, are generally browner with yellow markings, and are slightly larger than yellow jackets. They get their name from their mostly black color and white face. They live in aerial nests that resemble an inverted tear drop that is attached to a tree, bush utility pole, shed, an overhang or on the side of a building. Nests can start out the size of a softball early in the season but can grow to be the size of a watermelon or larger if left untreated. They will feed on live insects which can be beneficial to your garden. Hornets will not produce any honey and are not pollinators.

Due to their aggressive nature, we highly recommend calling a professional from JS Pest Control to look at any potential hornets nest. If you have an allergy and are stung by a hornet, you run the risk of asphyxiation and possible death.

Why We Remove Hornets?

Any type of stinging insect can become a problem to a homeowner. We want our customers to be able to enjoy the beautiful outdoors without any uneasiness of being stung. Hornets, like bees, and wasps can sting multiple times and attack in large numbers. A colony will remain active for the entire summer, and then the queen will leave to start a new colony. The colony will become more aggressive towards the end of the summer as the colony has grown and they search for food. Hornets pose the greatest risk to adults and children who are severely allergic to them. This is the main reason we strongly suggest you give us a call at the first sign of a possible nest. Our technicians are trained to spot behaviors and characteristics of each type of bee, wasp, or hornet known to the Massachusetts area.
