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

The Pest: European Hornets . . .

European HornetEuropean hornets are large in size, between ¾ and more than 1 inch. They are brown with yellow abdominal stripes and a pale face.

The nest: European hornets build paper carton nests that are usually covered in a brown paper envelope as protection. Typically, the nests can be found in hollow trees, barns, out buildings, hollow walls of houses and attics.

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

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