Our yellowjacket control services are performed by experienced and knowledgeable technicians.
Yellowjacket is the common name of social wasps that live throughout North America. In other countries, people often refer to these insects simply as wasps, as they’re part of the Vespula and Dolichovespula genera of wasps. Their bodies are black and yellow in color and feature large wings.
Yellowjackets form colonies and often fly quickly from side to side before landing. Female yellowjackets can and will sting, especially when they feel threatened. You might hear them called “meat bees,” as they tend to show up when you’re hosting a barbecue. They often feed their larvae on the proteins derived from meats and fish, as well as other insects, although adults primarily feed on carbohydrates and sugars from fruits, tree sap, and nectar.
The presence of yellowjackets on your property is concerning because of their ability to sting victims repeatedly. Unlike bees, which die after stinging a victim, yellowjackets do not lose their stingers, so they’re capable of issuing multiple stings at a time. Not only are the stings quite painful, but the venom released in the process can also cause a significant allergic reaction that can even be life-threatening in some cases.
