Stinging Insect

Wasps are scary. The hornets are terrifying. This is a simple fact of life. As we head deeper into summer here in Columbia, these pests will become more and more of a problem around local properties. The question is, do you have what it takes to stop these bugs before they bother you and your family? We are going to take a moment today to talk about hornet control methods and the problems these pests cause on local properties. Reach out to our team at The Original Bugman Pest Elimination, Inc. if you need immediate assistance combating these insects around your yard. Let us show you what pest control in Columbia is supposed to look like! 

How Hornets Are Different From Other Stinging Insects

One would think that hornets are much more different than other local types of stinging insects. The truth is, they are not. The biggest thing that sets hornets apart is their size. Most local species are a good bit larger than other common wasps. Other than this, these pests are just like other stinging insects in our area. They often live in large nests with hundreds to thousands of members. These nests are built out of chewed-up wood fibers mixed with saliva. You might find hornets' nests on the branches of trees around your property, inside tree-like shrubs, and underneath the eaves of buildings. If you suspect there is a nest on your property, do not hesitate to call our team for a quick inspection. We will help you determine if these pests are around and offer quick solutions to give them the boot.

Hornets Can Be Dangerously Aggressive

We are going to be completely honest with you. Hornets are not the most aggressive species of stinging insects here in Columbia. They do not even have the most painful stings. Keeping this in mind, these pests can become dangerously aggressive, given the right circumstances. You are most at risk of being stung when hornets feel threatened. This happens when they are trapped or feel like their nest is at risk. Your best option to avoid an attack is to avoid these pests altogether. One facet of this is investing in hornet pest control if you suspect there is a nest on your property. 

The Safe And Effective Way To Get Rid Of A Hornet Infestation

Trying to deal with hornets on your own could result in personal injury. This is something we would like to help you avoid. At The Original Bugman Pest Elimination, Inc., our team is highly trained to deal with these pests and avoid their painful stings. If you think there is an active nest on your property, call us in for hornet control. We will find a quick option to deal with active hives so that you do not have to worry about being stung when you spend time outdoors.

Practical Tips To Prevent Future Hornet Problems

Although we recommend leaving wasp and hornet control to the professionals, we encourage you to take precautions to deter these pests. Here are a few practical prevention tips you can use to avoid these stinging insects locally.

  • Reduce the number of flowering plants on your property.
  • Keep windows and doors closed and make sure your home’s exterior is properly sealed.
