Hornet Exterminator Services
Hornet Infestation Services
If you’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest long enough, you’ve likely encountered several types of hornets. There are many types of ecosystems here in Washington State, meaning some of these insects are probably going to try to make nests where you least want them: in or near your property. To support the safety and comfort of your family, hornet infestations require immediate hornet exterminator services from the team at Pest Pros.
At Pest Pros, we help homes and businesses get rid of unwanted insects, like hornets. These animals are not only frightening and bad for business, but they can also pose a serious risk to people with allergies. Perhaps most importantly, we not only eliminate the infestation, but also take measures to prevent a recurrence of the problem.
You are most likely to see two different types of hornets in the Pacific Northwest. The first is the bald-faced hornet, which is actually a giant wasp. It is an aggressive insect that is closely related to the yellowjacket, with the capability of stinging multiple times.
European hornets are another possibility. These are another species of aggressive hornets. Their nests, which can hold thousands of insects, resemble a gray football and are usually on the side of houses or anchored to tree branches.
When they feel threatened, hornets will attack and sting humans. Most serious stinging injuries take place when an untrained person attempts to eradicate hornets or their colonies. If you believe a colony of wasp or hornets has taken up residence on your property, it’s a good idea to contact a pest control company for professional hornet nest treatment and/or wasp exterminator services.
