Identifying Common Stinging Pests in Our Area

While true hornets are not native to our region, several other stinging pests often mistaken for hornets can pose similar risks. These include:

  • Western Cicada Killers: Solitary wasps that are generally non-aggressive but can be intimidating due to their size.
  • Bald-faced Hornets: Despite their name, these are actually a type of wasp known for their aggressive nature and striking appearance.
  • Other Commonly Misidentified Pests: Sawflies, horntails, wood wasps, and yellow jackets, which vary in behavior and the threat level.

Effective Solutions for Keeping Your Space Safe

Our approach to controlling hornets and similar pests involves:

  • Thorough Inspections: We conduct detailed assessments to identify the specific type of pest and understand the extent of the infestation.
  • Customized Treatment Plans: Based on the pest type and your specific situation, we develop a targeted plan to remove nests and manage populations.
  • Preventative Advice: Offering guidance on how to prevent future infestations by managing attractants and securing potential nesting sites.

Staying Informed About Asian Giant Hornets

The Asian giant hornet, often called the murder hornet, has garnered significant attention due to its size and the threat it poses to honeybees and potentially to humans. Key points include:

  • Recognition and Risk: These hornets can be up to 2 inches long with a wingspan of about 3 inches. They are powerful enough to sting through regular beekeeper suits and are dangerous due to their potent venom.
  • Current Status: While there have been few confirmed sightings in the U.S., it’s crucial to stay vigilant, especially given our proximity to previously identified locations in Washington State.
