We commonly get asked “How do I treat a hornet nest”? These nests commonly appear on trees and homes and when they’re close to where people are active, they definitely pose a hazard. Though our WASP CONTROL ARTICLE explains in great detail how to dust and remove these nests, it’s tough to beat a visual presentation.
The following is a complete “how to treat a hornet nest” video which will show in great detail what the nest looks like from the outside as well as the inside. And it will show these perspectives both before and after being treated. I say before because we were lucky to find a nest being constructed on a window which allowed us to get some great footage of what really happens deep inside the colony when viewed from inside the house. This unique view allows us to see workers, eggs, larvae and pupae as they exist in any common hornet nest.
