Hornets in Utah can usually be identified by their nest or hive. They build a large football shaped nest like the one in the picture above. These nests are usually hanging in a tree, but can sometimes be hanging on structure such as your home, shed or playset.
These pests are very protective of their nest and will get aggressive if they feel like there is any threat present. They are particularly agitated by vibrations and loud noises such as lawn mowers. The most common Utah hornet is the Bald Faced Hornet. These can be recognized by their black and white coloring instead of the yellow and black coloring that most of the other bee and wasp-like pests have. Hornets and Yellow Jackets are both territorial and it is uncommon for you to have more than one nest on your property. If you want to eliminate these pest from your yard without the high risk of being stung in the process, give us a call and we’ll get it taken care of for you.
