Recognizing Bald-Faced Hornets at Your Home
Bald-faced hornets are black with white patterns on their faces. They have a long, wasp-like shape and can be found throughout the U.S. These stinging insects greatly resemble yellow jackets, and they live in colonies with as many as 700-800 workers. Though most are about 1/2” in size, the queen of the colony is significantly larger. Bald-faced hornets are among the most aggressive flying insects. They are prone to stinging anything they consider to be invading their space, even when they do not necessarily feel threatened. Additionally, their smooth stingers allow them to attack multiple times. A bald-faced hornet sting not only hurts but also carries venom that can cause swelling, itching, and allergic reactions. Call Schopen Pest Solutions following the first sign of an infestation on your property.
Signs of A Bald-Faced Hornet Infestation
Signs of a bald-faced hornet infestation typically include identifying a nest on your property. The professionals at Schopen Pest Solutions have developed a keen eye for these nests, so we can confirm any suspicions you have during an inspection. If you spot one bald-faced hornet flying around your backyard or in your home, there could be a nest nearby. Their paper carton nests are usually at least three feet off the ground. They use any type of wood fibers mixed with their saliva to build nests. This includes newspaper, leaves, weathered decks, unpainted fences, etc. Their nests can get quite large, as big as a beach ball in some instances. Prime locations for bald-faced hornet nests on your property include:
- Utility Poles
- Garden Sheds
- Coach lights
How We Get Rid of Bald-Faced Hornets
When Bald-faced hornets feel threatened, they release pheromones into the air signaling other hornets to attack in droves. We strongly advise our clients to not remove their nests on their own. Schopen Pest Solutions has been removing hornet’s nests from Northern Illinois properties for years, and we have the proper equipment and expertise to do so safely. Our pest pros will conduct a thorough inspection of your home to identify any existing hornet nests. We use low-odor, residual pesticides, and sprays to eliminate the insects before removing their nests to ensure they do not return.

Here’s What Some Satisfied Customers Have to Say
Schopen was quick to respond to my initial inquiry and they accommodated a change in my
schedule. Luke arrived 10 minutes early and got right to diagnosing the issue. The source of the tiny
critters was found and treated. What a relief! I could not be more pleased with a company and the
service. (Office staff on the phone Kimm and Kiara were professional and helpful.) Thank you!!!
Everyone I dealt with was EXTREMELY knowledgeable. Pricing was fair. And best of all-my ants are
The guy called at the beginning of the time frame window and told me when he would be coming. It
is so nice to get a courtesy call when you have pets and kids. He was efficient and took care of what
Kevin did an excellent professional job with the required inspection. We then hired him to treat our
home for spiders. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
We hired Schopen to deal with mice we began seeing recently. They were on time, and the Tech Corey was super awesome! He was very informative and explained everything. Listened to our concerns and gave good information back. He found potential entry points and filled them. We had hired a different company before them and wasn't satisfied. Corey went behind them and found some things the other company should have. We have already noticed that there is barely any activity. best part of it, they don't try to lock you into a contract like most pest control companies do, They let you decide what you are comfortable with.
This customer rated you highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and work quality.
This company was very responsive. Once they arrived at my house the workers were very friendly, explained the situation, and how follow up consultations worked. After the first and second follow up visit the company called to see if we had any other questions. Which was very thoughtful.
