Hi friends, I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida, and people have asked us, how to exterminate Japanese hornets. Well you know Japanese hornets are one of those real bad bugs that we have out there that actually if they do sting you they're able to inject you with an enzyme that can dissolve bone and tissue. So these are real nasty guys that you want to make sure that you know what you're doing before you get stung. A couple of ways you as a homeowner can go ahead and get rid of Japanese hornets or find the occasional invader, is going ahead and getting a bucket and fill it with water, vinegar, detergent and a little lemon oil and that will go ahead and attract some of the individual stragglers from the county and they'll get stuck inside the pale, and then it's just as easy as pouring out the water when you've caught those. However, if you have found a nest of the Japanese hornets I only recommend a professional extermination, someone that has the proper safety equipment to go ahead and remove the nest by themselves so that you don't have to worry about getting stung by these aggressive hornets. Remember the hornets can do a lot of damage to people through their stings. One other thing is that a professional will use the proper safety equipment when they come out, the proper bee suits as well as face protection, and they can eliminate the entire hive at one application. So professional application if you find the nest, a nice bucket of water with the ingredients I've mentioned to eliminate the occasional invaders, and then you can have a pest-free day. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida, hoping you are safe.
