Hornets Pest Control: Aggressive and Dangerous Stinging Insects

Hornets are among the most feared stinging insects. Much larger than wasps or bees, some hornet species can grow over an inch long. Their powerful stingers are capable of inflicting excruciatingly painful stings. Hornets are also extremely aggressive and will fiercely defend their nests, stinging repeatedly if provoked.

While not as numerous or widespread as some other stinging insects, several types of hornets can be found in Connecticut. Common species include the European hornet, bald-faced hornet, and the Asian giant hornet (also known as the "murder hornet").

Any hornets around a home or business pose a serious health and safety threat. Even hornet species considered less aggressive can inflict dangerous stings, especially to those allergic to the venom. Children and pets playing outdoors, as well as workers doing yardwork or home maintenance, are particularly at risk of encountering hornets and disturbing nests.
