Hornet on a gray board

Hornets are similar to other stinging insects in that infestations around your home can lead to negative encounters. In urban areas, hornets make good use of buildings and structures to build their nests. Once a hornet infestation has been established in your home, removing it can be difficult, especially if you try to do it yourself. Hornet stings can be dangerous to your health, and hornet pest control around your home is critical if you want to ensure the safety of you, your family, and your friends.

Hornet infestations can be dangerous, and managing hornet infestations on your own can be difficult. If you need help with hornet control, Accurate Pest Control can help. Call us today, and let us be your San Antonio pest control experts.

How To Identify Common Hornets In San Antonio

Hornets are colony insects that build paper nests. They are black and yellow, have six legs, and have two sets of wings to fly. Hornets have notably larger heads than bees or yellow jackets. Hornets do not have fuzz on their bodies but are smooth and shiny. Hornets are highly territorial and may swarm as soon as they feel their nest may be in danger.

What Makes Hornets So Dangerous?

Hornets are highly protective of their nests. Disturbing their nests invites a quick response from hornets, who will quickly attack in a swarm. Unfortunately, hornets are not only protective of their nests but are also protective of the area around their nest. You can get stung by hornets just by walking near their nesting place. Unfortunately, children tend to be naturally curious and are often the first ones involved with negative hornet encounters. Although hornet stings are venomous and can be painful, in certain susceptible individuals, they can trigger severe allergic reactions that can result in hospitalization.

Insect bites and stings can be dangerous to you, your family, and your pets. Ineffective DIY pest control methods are often ineffective against hornet infestations and place you at risk of getting stung while trying to administer them. Instead of trying to handle stinging insects in San Antonio, call Accurate Pest Control. We can help you get hornets out of your yard and keep them away.

What Attracts Hornets To Yards?

Hornet control in San Antonio must not only focus on the hornets themselves but also on the reasons they come onto your property in the first place. Here are some of the things that attract hornets to your yard and what you can do about them:

  • Seal garbage: Exposed garbage can attract many kinds of pests. Seal exposed garbage tightly to discourage pests.
  • Eliminate clutter: Hornets like building their nests in clutter. Eliminate clutter from your yard in order in order to discourage hornets.
  • Seal your home: Hornets can exploit openings in your home to build nests. Sealing your home tightly can eliminate housing opportunities for hornets.
  • Inspect often: Hornet infestations are much easier to handle when small. Expecting your home often can help you catch hornets before they become large.

These are some ways you can minimize the chances of a hornet infestation coming to your property, but hornets are industrious and may still come to visit.
