The Dangers Of Trying To Remove A Hornet's Nest Yourself

Hornets play a significant role in our ecosystem but having them on your property is quite a nuisance. Not only that, but they're one of the worst stinging insects to try and tackle on your own. And while stings are the most obvious danger of these pests, you can't forget about the other dangers they pose as well. Let's take a look.

  • Falls: Hornets build their nests in high locations that you may not be able to reach. Using things like ladders or chairs may be the tool of choice for you to remove the nest, but the moment one darts at you aggressively, it can lead to a big fall with serious injuries.
  • Fires: Some so-called guides will tell you to set the nest on fire. Don't do it. Hornet nests are very flammable and can set your entire house on fire in an instant just by trying to ignite a small nest.
  • Stings: Whether you use a spray or a broom, trying to remove a nest on your own is a threat to the hornets, and they will attack you. Additionally, if you kill a hornet, the pheromones released will alert other hornets and send them flocking to you.

The moral of the story is always to contact professionals for proper hornet's nest removal. At All-Safe Pest & Termite, we have the appropriate gear, tools, and equipment to properly and safely remove hornets and other stinging insect nests from your property.
