When the weather is beautiful, it can be a real pleasure to be outdoors. Whether you’re working in the garden, mowing the lawn, or just relaxing with a cool beverage on the patio. The problem is, there may be stealth-like flying insects hovering nearby.
Hornets and Pheromones
Hornets aren’t an insect you want to make angry as they become aggressive when threatened. This can lead to a stinging fray that can leave you worse for wear. When faced with a hornet population, you need the help of a NJ pest control service.
While a single sting may not be an issue repeated stings can be, especially for those with allergic reactions. When a hornet feels in jeopardy, it isn’t just the one that will be on the defense.
Hornets are social. This means just one can incite action among the entire nest by releasing an attack pheromone. If the hornet is killed, it can still release the pheromone. If the scent of the pheromone comes into contact with your clothes or skin, this can cause an attack. When this happens, it can lead to repeated stings to you and anyone or anything else, like pets, that may be nearby.
For help with hornets and their nests, the NJ pest control experts at Stern Environmental have the knowledge and equipment to deal with the situation safely. Schedule an appointment and we’ll take care of the rest.
