Hornets & Wasps

They can swarm and sting; especially dangerous for those with allergies.

What Hornets & Wasps Do In Your Home

The word hornet is often used interchangeably with bee or wasp, though they are all different species. The bald-faced hornet looks like a large yellow jacket except for the white markings on it. European hornets are also common but are less aggressive. They have a reddish brown appearance.

Unlike bees, wasps are capable of stinging multiple times. Wasps are mildly aggressive, and they will sting if they are provoked. Unless the person stung is allergic, most wasp stings will only cause minor pain and discomfort. Initial signs of a wasp sting are redness, swelling, and itching at the sting site. A welt will often appear at the site. If an allergic reaction occurs, advanced medical attention is advised. Because of the risk of being stung, Virginia Beach wasp removal is best done by a professional wasp exterminator with the proper equipment.

Many hornets that take up residence in your home or property can sting, and will often swarm and do so when disturbed. Hornet stings can be serious as even just one can be enough to send a person with an allergy into anaphylactic shock. Hornet and wasp removal requires specialized equipment and can be dangerous.
