Hornet Extermination in Cleveland, OH

Hornet nest hanging from a branch

During late summer picnics and barbecues, opportunistic wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets are out and about, looking for their next meal. Their life cycle is winding down, and they’re getting antsy. They’re on the hunt, not for their usual protein-rich snack, but for sugary treats.

Hornets are not native to the United States, but they’re here regardless. In our backyards we most often encounter a large wasp that is commonly known as the baldfaced hornet and occasionally the western European hornet.They are social insects and are in the same family as wasps and yellow jackets but are much larger and can be quite aggressive when provoked.

Signs of a Hornet Infestation

  • Excessive hornet activity around the home
  • Visible paper nests under building eaves
  • Insects coming and going to one location
  • Insects noticeably harvesting soft or rotting wood

What You Can Do

  • Remove potential attractants, like fallen fruit or rotting food waste
  • Close garbage containers tightly
  • Seal potential points of entry on your home and other structures
  • Remove or replace weathered or rotting wood
  • Keep trees and shrubs trimmed and thinned

DIY hornet extermination solutions and sprays are commonly promoted online, and pesticides are commercially available in countless stores, but we wouldn’t recommend either of these popular options. Without proper knowledge, experience, equipment and protection, a seemingly harmless DIY solution could end up being as dangerous for you as it is supposed to be for the hornets. Physical removal is also extremely risky if performed by a homeowner. And as long as the queen is around, you’ll always have a hornet population hanging on.

When all else fails, and before you get too invested, call on a local and trusted hornet exterminator in Cleveland, Ohio. Look no further than the experts at Cleveland Bee Removal for help to address the issue.

How To Get Rid of a Hornet Infestation

Your property has everything a hornet could want: shelter, access to water and food, and a safe place to raise their young. You can’t move to another house to escape them, and it would require a major structural change to make your property unappealing. Like rodents, wasps, ants, bees, and roaches, hornets will stick around if they’re finding what they need. Meanwhile, they could end up becoming a major nuisance for you and your family.

As professional exterminators, we understand a hornet colony’s behavior. We can efficiently identify the pests, locate their nests and points of entry and either remove them physically or treat them chemically with the appropriate pesticides. If you’ve tried everything you can and you’re still dealing with pesky hornets, there’s no need to try and handle it on your own. Give us a call today to hear directly from our licensed hornet exterminators in Cleveland, Ohio.
