A Yellow Jacket Queen builds a hive in order to have a safe place to lay her eggs. These insects are usually docile but will attack if they feel their nest is in danger. Unlike bees, each Yellow Jacket can sting multiple times.
They usually build their hives in shrubs, bushes, homes, garages and can also build nests in the ground. If the hive is built in or near entrances to buildings, they can be dangerous to humans as they will “protect” their hives. Their hives are constructed of rounded paper combs.
If you should find one of these hives on your property, contact us. You should not try to eliminate a hive yourself as this will make the Yellow Jackets very aggressive.
Our technicians have the proper equipment and knowledge to treat Yellow Jacket infestations safely and thoroughly.
