Hornet Vs. Wasp, What’s The Difference?
You’re calling it a wasp problem while your neighbor calls it a hornet problem. So, who’s right? The short answer is that you could both be right. Hornets are wasps. There are 22 species of larger wasps called hornets.
If these critters seem to be everywhere, it’s probably not your imagination. Here are just a few of the many types of hornets and wasps found locally in Nevada.
- Common Thread Waisted Wasp
- Five-Banded Tiphiid Wasp
- Yellow Jackets Aka Meat Bees
- Giant Ichneumon Wasp
- Black & Yellow Mud Dauber
- FourToothed Mason Wasp
- Great Golden Digger Wasp
Pests That Cause Property Damage
When you’re trying to get rid of wasps, it can take a little investigation work. Some wasps nests are easy to spot hanging from trees or eaves. Other times our hornet exterminators will track down nests that have been built over months beneath your siding or inside your walls.
The longer you wait to tackle wasp or hornet control, the more damage they can do to your home or place of business.
A Danger To Pets & Guests
Wasps can sting or bite. And unlike bees that can only sting once, they can continue to attack over and over again. Some pets will learn quickly not to bother these pests, but unfortunately, it’s only after they’ve been stung. The same goes for small children.
You don’t want guests to start avoiding the pool or barbecue area because of poor wasp control. Don’t let stinging pests put a damper on your outdoor fun. Our exterminators can help.
Helping Or Hurting Your Pollinators
Precise pest control takes your landscape and its beneficial bugs into consideration. Parasitic wasps sit in the middle of this equation. Although they can help by preying on harmful insects to your lawn and garden, some also hurt our most beneficial pollinators like bees and butterflies.
