Wasps, Bees and Hornets are Very Active During Warm Spring Weather


The warm humid air provides an excellent environment for these stinging insect species here in the Metro D.C area and it is important to know exactly what is buzzing around your property. The Bald faced Hornet is an aggressive insect that builds aerial nests. This hornet is normally black with a characteristic white pattern over most of its face. The bald faced hornet’s nest can be found in areas like trees, chimneys, under eaves, behind siding, in barns, attics and other structures. Wasps and Bees will also build their nests under eaves, near home entrances and other areas that can pose as a threat to you and your family.
