How To Identify the Pest, the Nest and the Threat - Baldfaced Hornets

The Pest: Baldfaced Hornets. . .

Baldfaced hornets are largely black in color, with a mostly white face.

The nest: Baldfaced hornets build aeriel nests out of paper carton. The nests are usually in exposed locations, often on trees, utility poles, overhangs or other structures. The nests can be quite large, growing to 14 inches in diameter and 24 inches in length.

The threat: Baldfaced hornets are considered beneficial insects because they control many pest insect species. However, if their nest is located near a structure, control is warranted.

If you're concerned that you have bald-faced hornets near your home or place of business, give Dave a call at 1-800-400-6009.
