WHERE TO FIND YELLOW JACKETS

  • Yellow jackets are often found in several locations around a your property and can quickly become a buzzing problem if control is not put in place immediately.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A YELLOW JACKET PROBLEM

It is usually not hard to identify a yellow jacket problem around a house or property.

YELLOW JACKETS IN THE ATTIC, GARAGE, HOUSE, SOFFIT, OR YARD

  • Once you identify a yellow jacket problem, the next step is to consider using one of many control methods.

YELLOW JACKET HAZARDS

  • If left uncontrolled, yellow jackets can cause a lot of damage and pose health and safety risks for families and pets.
  • Many people begin swatting and shooing at yellow jackets, but this can irritate and encourage them to sting or hide.
  • When found or uncovered unexpectedly, a yellow jacket may immediately sting and some can sting numerous times.
  • Some yellow jackets die after stinging once, but some can continue to sting and draw in other yellow jackets because they feel endangered.
  • Small children and pets are at risk, so yellow jacket control in the area should be considered at the first sign of a problem.

PREVENTION

The best way to prevent a yellow jacket problem is to remove them as soon as you notice signs.

It is best to remove the nest when it is small, instead of waiting until the nest attracts hundreds of yellow jackets.
