How to get rid of Hornets and BeesTo get rid of this pest problem and take control, inspection is the first step to evaluate the problem.

Hornets are insects, the largest eusocial wasps. Some species can reach up to 5.5 cm (2.2 in) in length. The true hornets make up the genus Vespa and are distinguished from other vespines by the width of the vertex (part of the head behind the eyes), which is proportionally larger in Vespa and by the anteriorly rounded gasters (the section of the abdomen behind the wasp waist). The best known species is the European hornet (Vespa crabro), about 2–3.5 cm in length, widely distributed throughout Europe, Russia, North America and Northeast Asia. Most species make exposed nests in trees and shrubs, but some (like Vespa orientalis) build their nests underground or in other cavities.

In Vespa crabro, the nest is founded in spring by a fertilized female known as the queen. She generally selects sheltered places like dark hollow tree trunks. She first builds a series of cells (up to 50) out of chewed tree bark. The cells are arranged in horizontal layers named combs, each cell being vertical and closed at the top. An egg is then laid in each cell. After 5–8 days, the egg hatches, and in the next two weeks, the larva undergoes its five stages. During this time, the queen feeds it a protein-rich diet of insects.

HORNETS PEST CONTROLHornets are insects, the largest eusocial wasps. There are different types of controls to get rid of hornets.

Practical Non-Chemical Hornet Control, Natural Hornet Control, Hornet Nest Removal. CAUTION! You should get professional help for hornets nest removal. Keeping garbage cans sealed, clean, and take garbage out regularly, should help get rid of hornets. Vinegar apparently makes a good bait for water traps designed to capture and get rid of hornets. There is another type of non-chemical trap that is useful for getting rid of hornets, and it’s called a Queen trap. Mechanical extermination outdoors, is not a recommended means of getting rid of hornets, but it is a good way to get rid of hornets indoors. The Queen Trap is the more complicated trap, and is a modification of a previous do-it-yourself trap.
