How to Get Rid of Hornets
Hornets can be aggressive and their presence near homes or businesses can be a cause for concern. If you're dealing with a hornet problem in Nebraska or Wyoming, Benzel Pest Control is here to help. Our experienced professionals can safely and effectively remove hornets and provide long-term solutions to keep them from returning.
Here are some steps to consider when dealing with hornet infestations:
- Identify the Nest: The first step in hornet control is locating the nest. Hornets typically build their nests in protected areas, such as trees, shrubs, or even inside wall voids. Carefully observe the hornets' flight patterns to determine their entry and exit points, which can lead you to the nest.
- Approach with Caution: Hornets are known for their aggressive behavior when their nests are threatened. It's important to exercise extreme caution when dealing with hornets. Wear protective clothing, including long sleeves, pants, gloves, and a veil or beekeeping hat. Make sure to cover as much skin as possible to minimize the risk of stings.
- Use Non-Toxic Hornet Traps: One way to control hornet populations is by using non-toxic hornet traps. These traps are designed to attract hornets and capture them, reducing their numbers around your property. Place the traps away from high-traffic areas and regularly empty them to maintain their effectiveness.
- Seek Professional Assistance: If the hornet infestation is significant or the nest is in a hard-to-reach location, it's best to seek the help of professional pest control services. Our licensed technicians at Benzel Pest Control have the knowledge, experience, and protective equipment to safely eliminate hornet nests and provide effective control measures.
- Avoid Dangerous DIY Nest Removal: Attempting to remove a hornet nest on your own can be extremely dangerous. Disturbing the nest without proper equipment and expertise may lead to multiple hornet stings, which can be life-threatening for individuals who are allergic to their venom. It's crucial to leave nest removal to professionals who can assess the situation and employ appropriate strategies to eliminate the nest safely.
- Prevent Future Infestations: After removing the hornet nest, it's important to take preventive measures to avoid future infestations. Seal any cracks or openings in the exterior of your home or business to prevent hornets from accessing potential nesting sites. Regularly inspect and maintain your property to minimize attractive food sources, such as uncovered garbage or fallen fruit.
At Benzel Pest Control, we prioritize the safety and satisfaction of our customers. Our team is equipped with the necessary tools and expertise to handle hornet infestations efficiently and effectively.

Complete Care in Eliminating Your Pest Problem
Before we can start to remove wasps, hornets, or bees from your property, it is essential to find where these insects are nesting in the first place. Many homeowners are surprised to find that these intruders do not necessarily make a house in the corners beneath your roof or rafters.
Nests can easily be built in the corners of:
- Along gutters
- Beneath porches and steps
- In tree trunks
- Or right on the ground
We have even discovered colonies sheltering in empty mailboxes or beneath the hoods of abandoned cars. Once we have identified the primary source of the colony, we can diagnose the situation to provide the safest method of removing the nest and its inhabitants from your property.

It is never a good idea to try to handle pest elimination on your own, but this is never more true than when it comes to insects like hornets, bees, or wasps. These kinds of stinging creatures may seem calm from far away, but just take a step too close to their nest or hive and you could be under attack. To avoid the painful consequences of trying to handle this problem on your own, always reach out to our experienced crew at Benzel Pest Control.
