Of all the pests we handle, hornets can be some of the trickiest. They are territorial and become extremely hostile when threatened. Hornet issues must be handled cautiously but promptly. The ideal time to have a nest removed is in the early spring when their construction is not yet finished. That said, if you should notice a finished nest, you must leave it be. Any action you take will be met violently. Your best (and really only) option is to call a wildlife removal service. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions is fully trained and licensed to handle these pests, but many removal services are not. Make the safe choice and call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at (844) 544-9453!

Our Hornet Removal Services – The BWS Advantage

The first thing your specialist will do once they arrive is to locate the hornet’s nest and survey the surrounding area. It is important to take into account the geography of the nest and the space surrounding it. Doing this allows us to form the most effective extermination plan. It also may indicate an underlying problem that is attracting pests to your location. Hornets typically feed on fruits and sugary plant substances such as sap or honey. Removal may include the use of traps, pesticides, or both. Once the nest is destroyed, we will remove all hornets from your property as well as any remnants of the nest. Upon removal, we offer options for future pest prevention including sealing potential crevices for ground nests.

Hornet Background & Biology

The hornet is the largest existing species of wasp. They are very similar in appearance to the yellowjacket – with some species growing to be over 2 inches long! Luckily for those of us in Central Ohio, no hornets grow to that size. The hornet’s stinger, much like other wasps, is smooth which allows them to sting their target multiple times with no break. Furthermore, the stings include a dose of venom which makes them even more painful. The pain factor is correlated with the type and amount of venom used, but the species in Ohio are not deadly. Hornets get extremely aggressive when their nest is threatened. If you should come in contact with hornets, do everything you can to stay out of their space. Hornet colonies can include hundreds of members and each one will defend the nest to their deaths.

Our staff is fully trained and licensed to handle hornet’s nest removals. In a field where many companies go in blind, make the safe choice for you and your property. Call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at (844) 544-9453 for expert removal service.

Why Can’t I Remove the Nest Myself?

People tend to drastically undersell the capabilities of wasps and hornets. These are not honey bees — they will do serious damage to anyone around their nest. If you don’t have a working knowledge of their behavior (understanding their routines, how they operate within their nest, time-based patterns), you put yourself at great risk trying to remove them on your own. Several companies sell do-it-yourself removal products, but there is simply no item on the market which proves useful against a hornet’s nest. Considering the stakes, by no means should you be putting your safety in the hands of hack products. Our wildlife removal specialists are all trained, licensed, and experienced in the practice of removing hornet’s nests. Please don’t mess around – Call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions today at (844) 544-9453!
