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:

  • Trees
  • Shrubs
  • Overhangs
  • Utility Poles
  • Garages
  • 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.
