How to get rid of bald-faced hornet?

To get a pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

Baldfaced hornets are social insects that live in aerial nests. The adults are represented by workers which are sterile females, queens, and males which come from unfertilized eggs and usually appear in the late summer. Only inseminated females overwinter and do so in sheltered places.

The overwintering queen selects the nest site. This can vary from shrubs or vines at ground level to 66 ft (20 m) or higher in trees. Nests may also be built on overhangs, utility poles, houses, sheds, or other structures. Nearly all nests are constructed in exposed locations. At maturity, the nests can be quite impressive with sizes of up to 14″ (35 cm) in diameter and over 24″ (60+ cm) in length.

Often nests located in vegetation are not discovered until the leaves fall in the autumn. Nests are not reused the next season.
