The Most Dangerous in Chicagoland.

That is quite a moniker!  In the 1920’s many would have said Al Capone.  So what is considered the most dangerous wasp that frequents our area?  This is thought to be the Bald faced Hornet.  Bald faced hornets are distinguished from other yellow jackets by their white and black coloring.  This should help you know what to look for.

It has a white or "bald faced" head, which is the source of its unique nickname.  They are notably larger than other species.  Adults average about ¾ of an inch in length.  These wasps also have three white stripes at the end of their bodies.  They are generally found in forested areas as well as in vegetation in urban areas.

Make no mistake about it…the bald faced hornet is NOT to be trifled with!  If the above description fits what you have seen on your property, please call the wasp solution professionals…A Complete Pest Solution serving the needs of Chicagoland pest control for many years.  That phone number is (630) 464-1542.
