How do I know if I have a hornet problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a hornet infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to hornets will help you determine if it is in fact hornets you are dealing with.

Hornets are very similar to the common wasp but twice the size. It also has brown and yellow stripes instead of black and yellow. 

If you see a large number of hornets around you are likely to find a nest closely. 

Hornets build nests in hollow trees and similar sites. They only occasionally enter houses.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a through survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – Proofing recommendations will always be given by our technicians when identified. 
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing for pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what is says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. We use commercial-grade insecticides safely and in accordance with the label to ensure full control. 
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions for you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
