To Whom It may Concern. This review is for Hornets, Bed Bugs and the great customer service I received.

I would like to express  my sincere gratitude for the help I received on Saturday August 16, 2014 Rob came to our house for an Inspection for Bed Bugs, my 4th. I was immediately impressed  by the knowledge he seemed to know. I had 3 other inspections before Rob, and they didn’t find anything but wanted to charge me over a $1,000 anyway with no guarantee. I still was not convinced I had them. Rob came and pulled the carpet back by my head board, showed me 4 bugs he found asked if this was the ones I called for and when I said yes he told me they were Carpet Beetles a quick and easy fix. I was so happy and impressed I had him knock down a basket ball shaped Hornets Hive.

Please offer Rob my thanks. Cobra Pest Control is lucky to have him.

Hornet Information
Biology and Behavior

What are Hornets?

Bald-Faced Hornets are the most common Hornet in Rhode Island and are actually a Wasp and closely related to Yellow Jackets. Hornets are Social Insects that build Hives by chewing leaves into a papery pulp. They mature from egg to adult inside the hive. The Queen Hornet dominates the hive and is the only female to reproduce. Bald-Faced Hornets will defend a nest very aggressively if they feel threatened.

What do Hornets look like?

The Bald-Faced Hornet has a black body with a white face. Bald-Faced Hornets are large, with workers ranging from 1/2” to 3/4”. The Bald-Faced Hornet Nest is a grey paper tear shaped ball usually under an eave or on a branch of a tree.

Do Hornets Sting?

Yes, Hornets Sting and will Sting Repeatedly. Hornet Nests can contain thousands of Hornets and will defend their nest very aggressively. Hornet Stings are very painful and tend to happen on the face.

Are Hornets Dangerous?

Hornet Sting symptoms will vary from person to person. If a person is Allergic to the Hornets Venom they can experience side effects such as nausea, fainting and even death. The larger the amount of stings a person receives increases the affects. All persons will show severe reaction with enough stings.

What are the signs of me having Hornets?

The only signs of a Hornet Problem is a Large Paper Nest and the activity of the workers.

How can I rid my house of Hornets?

Bald-Faced Hornets are far more difficult and dangerous to control than other Bees and WaspsHornet Nests can contain thousands of Hornets which are very aggressive when disturbed. The nests are usually located up high and Extermination is best performed by a Professional Pest Control Company.

How did I get Hornets?

Hornets on your property are mostly by chance but some things can make it an ideal place. Hornets feed on other insects as well as scavenge from carrion. Open trash cans can attract them. You may have out of the way areas such as under eaves and tree branches.

Hornet Control Tips for your home

  • Periodically check under the eaves of the house, branches of trees and in the bushes. It is much easier to spray and knock down an egg sized nest than a basket ball size nest.
  • Hornets eat flower nectar, fruit juice, sap, and insects. Dispose of dropped fruit from trees, juice box and preventative Pest Control Helps.
  • Do not let your kids close to a Bald-Faced Hornet Nest it could contains thousands of Hornets.
  • If you use traps place them away from where you spend your time outside, traps my attract more that catch.
  • If you attempt to handle Hornets yourself spray at sunrise or dusk when insects are least active.
  • Clean exterior trash cans and leave the lids on tight.
  • If the Nest is big, up high and you are unsure call a Professional.
