How Do I Know I’m Dealing with Hornets?

While they have similar features to yellow jackets and wasps, hornets are their own distinct type of stinging insect and are known for their aggressive behavior. The most common type of hornets found in the Silver Spring area are the bald-faced hornet and the European hornet.

How Do I Know Which Type of Hornet I Have?

Bald-faced Hornets: black bodies with gray stripes, ¾” to 1.5” in length, tend to make their nests around windows or in the eaves a home.

European Hornets: brown bodies with yellow stripes, 4/5” to 1.4” in length, tend to make their nests at least 6 feet off the ground in places such as hollowed out walls, buildings, trees, and attics.

When Are Hornets Most Active?

In the Silver Spring, MD area, hornets are most active during spring and summer. Hornets will spend most of their time during these warmer months building nests, reproducing, and searching for food.

Are Hornets Dangerous?

A hornet may strike multiple times during an attack, releasing their venom with each painful sting. Many people are known to be allergic to this venom and may need to seek medical attention after being stung.

What Should I Do If I Get Stung?

Unlike yellow jackets, hornets do not die when they sting, so they may sting multiple times in an attack. You should do your best to remove yourself quickly and calmly from the situation. Wash the sting with soap and water and apply ice on and off to reduce swelling and inflammation. If you think you may be allergic to the venom in the sting, you should seek medical attention immediately.

How Do I Get Rid of Hornets?

Because of their aggressive nature, you should never touch, disturb, or try to remove a hornet nest by yourself. Our highly trained technicians can quickly, safely, and effectively rid your home of hornets, preventing you, your family, and your pets from any painful hornet stings.

How Can I Remove a Hornets Nest?

The safest way to remove a hornets nest from your home is always going to be to call a professional. Our technicians are highly trained in the safe and effective removal of hornets nests, even from the more hard-to-reach places. Due to the hornet’s aggressive nature, you should never try to remove a nest from a somewhere you can’t reach.

How Can I Prevent the Hornets from Returning?

The best way to prevent the hornets from returning to your home is with a quarterly pest control plan. Once we’ve gotten the hornets under control during your initial pest control service, we recommend year-round quarterly treatment of the exterior of your home to prevent the hornets from returning and building another nest. Keeping your shrubbery trimmed, repainting the exterior walls and eaves of your home, and hanging sun-catchers near known-nesting areas are some other ways you can help prevent hornets from returning to your home.

Silver Spring MD

Silver Spring is a census-designated place (CDP) in southeastern Montgomery County, Maryland, near Washington DC. Although officially unincorporated, in practice it is an edge city. Silver Spring is the fourth most populous place in Maryland, after Baltimore, Columbia, and Germantown, and the second most populous in Montgomery County after Germantown.

The downtown, located next to the northern tip of Washington DC, is the oldest and most urbanized part of the community. Since beginning a significant renaissance in 2004, many new mixed-use developments combining retail, residential, and office space have been built. Downtown is in turn surrounded by several inner suburban residential neighborhoods located inside the Capital Beltway.

Silver Spring takes its name from a mica-flecked spring discovered there in 1840 by Francis Preston Blair, who subsequently bought much of the surrounding land. Acorn Park, south of downtown, is believed to be the site of the original spring.

From west to east, Silver Spring is bisected by four major creeks: Rock Creek, Sligo Creek, Long Branch, and Northwest Branch. Each is surrounded by parks offering hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, and tennis courts. On weekends, road closures in the parks facilitate bicycling.
