Yellow Jackets Pest Control: Aggressive Stinging Insects

Yellow jackets are a type of wasp that tend to be more aggressive and dangerous compared to other stinging insects. Their potent venom and tendency to fiercely defend nests makes yellow jacket problems a major safety concern, especially around homes and businesses.

These striped wasps have slender builds and are between 1/2 to 1 inch long. They build paper carton nests that can house thousands of workers. Yellow jacket nests are often found in the ground, shrubs, trees, structural voids, or other hard-to-reach locations.

When a nest is disturbed, yellow jackets will swarm and sting repeatedly to defend their territory. Their toxic stings can cause severe swelling, nausea, and dangerous reactions in those who are allergic. Children and pets are at particular risk if they inadvertently stumble upon a nest.

Signs of Yellow Jacket Activity
