Yellow Jackets

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Yellow Jackets Dangerous?

Yellow Jackets can be dangerous to humans due to their aggressive behavior and painful stings. They can sting multiple times, injecting venom that causes pain, redness, and swelling. Some individuals may experience severe allergic reactions to Yellow Jacket stings, which can be life-threatening. It is important to exercise caution around Yellow Jackets and seek professional help if a nest is discovered on your property.

Why do I have a Yellow Jacket problem?

Yellow Jackets are attracted to properties that offer them food, shelter, and suitable nesting sites. They may build nests in the ground, in trees, or within structures like eaves, attics, or wall voids. Open trash cans, unsealed food containers, and rotting fruit can also attract Yellow Jackets to your property.

Where will I find Yellow Jackets?

Yellow Jackets can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found near their nests or foraging for food on flowers, fruit, or insects. Inside, they may be found in attics, wall voids, or other hidden spaces where they have built their nests. They are most active during the warmer months and are more likely to be encountered during daylight hours.

How do I get rid of Yellow Jackets?

To get rid of Yellow Jackets, first identify the location of their nest. Do not attempt to remove the nest yourself, as this can be dangerous due to the risk of being stung. Instead, contact a professional pest control service to safely remove the nest and eliminate the Yellow Jacket colony. Additionally, implement proper sanitation practices and eliminate potential food sources to discourage Yellow Jackets from returning.

How can I prevent Yellow Jackets?

Preventing Yellow Jackets involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing potential nesting sites, and regularly inspecting your home and yard for signs of activity. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential food sources. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows, and keep trash cans and food containers tightly sealed.

What are Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets are social wasps belonging to the genus Vespula. They have a distinctive black and yellow color pattern and are often mistaken for bees. Yellow Jackets are known for their aggressive behavior, especially when their nests are disturbed. They feed on a variety of insects, as well as sugary substances like nectar and fruit. Yellow Jackets can be beneficial by controlling insect populations but can become a nuisance when they build nests near human activity.
