Hornets are far more aggressive, they can also be solo but are more likely to be in a large nest. The great black hornet is one that is a serious and dangerous threat to most homes. It can nest on its own in a paper sphere underground in an abandoned rodent hole or it can make an aerial nest in a tree or on an overhang on your home. They make papery large nests that are not spherical but deformed and wonky. They are very aggressive and will attack anyone that approaches the nest or infuriates them in any way. Allergies to hornets can be very deadly.

If you have a solo wasp nest on your property you don’t have to remove it. You can kill the nest yourself by spraying it at night when the wasps are sleeping or removing it and relocating it with a jar and cutting board. Not something most people need to call a professional for but if you are older or if you have pets and children you may want to call Wasp Control to remove the nest, even if it’s small.
