What are yellow jackets?

The Yellow Jacket has similar features to the bee. They are usually smaller, with yellow and black stripes on their body. They are very aggressive and can sting more than once. Their nests are typically made close to the ground and can be made of paper-like material, which is a mixture of wood and salivary secretions of the female wasps.

How do I know if I have a yellow jacket infestation?

When a nest is seen, a problem has occurred. Yellow jackets may have colonies in the hundreds or thousands, and can grow to large quantities overnight. These nests are usually found in wall voids, in the ground, by juniper bushes, and sometimes on tree limbs. They are very active with rapid movement and are extremely aggressive.

What impact do yellow jackets have?

They build their nests around human establishments, and many people are allergic to Yellow jacket stings. Due to their defensive nature, Yellow Jackets are easily provoked to sting when their nest is disturbed. For this reason, it’s vital to seek out an insect pest control service to get the situation handled.
