Hornets are highly aggressive pests that can deliver painful stings. If you see a hornet’s nest on your property, you might be tempted to get rid of it as soon as possible, but that can be a very dangerous task to do on your own.
Hornet nests, which are usually found hanging from bushes trees or building exteriors, are typically filled with tons of these bugs that won’t hesitate to attack when their nest is moved or disturbed. Approaching the nest involves wearing a full wasp suit to reduce the risk of stings. These suits are usually sealed around openings, such as the collar and wrists, providing protection from these aggressive insects.
While you can get rid of hornets with the right insecticide, it needs to be applied through the nest opening without cracking any other part of the nest. After the insecticide is applied, the nest can be removed at night while wearing a wasp suit again, but only if there is no sign that any hornets are still alive.
Instead of trying to rid your property of a hornet nest, leave it to professionals to do it safely. Otherwise, you could end up covered in stings.
