Signs of a Hornet Infestation

The biggest sign of a Hornet infestation is the nest itself. Once a Hornet has been spotted you should figure out their flight pattern and you will notice how Hornets arrive and depart from their nest. Hornets will collect wood fibers from fences or trees when building nests so another sign are damaged wood.

Where and how do Hornets create nests?

Depending on the species but wasps, hornets and yellow jackets typically like to build their nests in high areas.

A Hornet Queen builds her nest around water sources such as pools and ponds for easier access of water. The benefit of this is that they offer natural mosquito control. A Hornets nest is built by mixing together collected wood fibers with their saliva.

Just like paper wasps, Hornets nests look like brown paper-mache wrapped around the size of a basketball becoming aerial nests. A Hornets nest is built by mixing together collected wood fibers with their saliva.

If you have seen a Hornets nest please be sure to keep at least a 2-3 meter radius from their nest. Hornet nests can be found in locations such as attics, tree branches, bushes, and buildings and inside of a wall void.

Hornet Life Cycle

A hornet’s life cycle depends on the queen’s ability to survive during the colder weather seasons.

In the Spring, the Queen starts laying eggs to her worker hornets. When the eggs hatch the queen collects insects to feeds the larvae, which are called hornet grubs.

The hornet grubs go through a pupal stage and develop into working adults. As working adults their roles are build nests, protect the nest and gathering food for the colony.

In late summer the queens’ produces sexually mature male and female hornets so that they can begin new cycles. Hornets typically live about 6 months but queens will live through the Wintertime.

We had a hornet infestation in our backyard towards the end of June and my kids were freaking out about it. We called All n One and they took care of it the next day. I was so amazed by the customer service. We loved working with them.
