Dealing with a hornet nest can be scary. No one wants to get stung by a hornet. If you have a hornet nest on or around your property, it’s important to know what to do to stay safe during a hornet nest removal.

How to Stay Safe During a Hornet Nest Removal

•  Wear protective covering. Long clothes that cover your skin are best, so opt for long sleeves and pants if you have to be around the hornet nest. It’s also good to wear clothes that are tight around the cuff. This prevents hornets from flying into your clothing. Protective eye covering is also good.

•  Avoid the nest as much as you can. If the hornet nest can be avoided, steer clear, especially if you have an allergy to hornets.

•  Contact a professional. We here at Florida Bee Removal are experts at hornet nest removal, so rather than trying to handle the problem on your own, reach out to us. We know how to safely remove the nest without getting ourselves hurt and are better equipped to deal with hornets.

•  Prevent future hornet nests from forming after the removal. After you’ve hired a professional hornet nest removal service and the nest has been disposed of, one of the best things you can do to stay safe is to prevent future hornet nests from forming. Make sure to properly dispose of all garbage so it doesn’t attract hornets in the future. It’s also good to seal gaps into your home that hornets could fly into, such as around gutters and attics.
