How To Identify Hornets

  • Hornets are larger than wasps, typically around 1 to 1.5 inches in length.
  • They have a black and white or black and yellow coloration, depending on the species.
  • The Bald-Faced Hornet, common in South Carolina, is recognizable by its white and black pattern.
  • Hornets build large, paper-like nests, often in trees, shrubs, or on buildings.
  • Their nests have a distinctive football shape and are usually found hanging above the ground.

Hornets Habits

  • Hornets are social insects and live in colonies that can contain hundreds of members.
  • They are most active during the day and return to their nests at night.
  • Hornets feed on insects, including pests, making them beneficial for natural pest control.
  • They can become aggressive when their nest is threatened or disturbed.
  • Hornets are particularly active in late summer and early fall when their colonies reach peak size.

How To Prevent Hornets

  • Regularly inspect your property for hornet nests, particularly in the spring and early summer.
  • Avoid leaving food and sweet beverages outdoors, which can attract hornets.
  • Keep garbage cans tightly sealed and away from outdoor living spaces.
  • Trim back vegetation around your home to reduce potential nesting sites.
  • If you find a hornet nest, do not attempt to remove it yourself. Contact Marett Pest Control for safe and professional hornet nest removal.
