Yellowjackets Around My House: What Should I Do Next?

Tagged As:

Discovering a swarm of yellowjackets buzzing around your house can be a daunting experience – and it seems like this year has been worse than ever. Yellowjackets are known for their aggressive behavior and painful stings, making it crucial to address the situation promptly and efficiently. Fear not, for AAA Pest Control is here to guide you through the necessary steps to handle this pest problem safely and effectively. 

  1. Identify the Yellowjackets: The first step is to correctly identify the pests. Yellowjackets are often mistaken for bees, but they have thinner bodies and brighter yellow coloration. Unlike bees, yellowjackets are more likely to build nests in the ground, eaves, or wall voids. It’s essential to know what you’re dealing with before taking any action. 
  1. Stay Safe: Yellowjackets can become aggressive when they feel threatened. Avoid disturbing their nest or getting too close to the swarm. Keep children and pets away from the area to prevent potential stings. 
  1. Avoid DIY Solutions: While it might be tempting to handle the issue yourself, DIY attempts can be dangerous and may exacerbate the problem. Store-bought insecticides are often ineffective against yellowjacket nests and may cause the insects to become more aggressive.
