Spire Pest Control’s Yellow Jacket Exterminator Service

Yellow Jackets are small aggressive wasps named after their black striped yellow coat. Because of their appearance they can be easily mistaken as common bees, but they are much faster and more dangerous. [Location} homeowners should be on the lookout for small paper Mache style nests around their homes, as it could be a yellow jacket nest. They are social creatures and live in large colonies, meaning if you’ve seen one in your yard, you may have an infestation. Like most wasp stings, children and pets are especially sensitive to stings, and it is best practice to hire an exterminator to promptly remove nests.Spire Pest Control is here to help homeowners live yellow jacket free.

Signs of a Yellow Jacket Infestation

You might already know you have a yellow jacket infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs yellow jacket infestation. 

Yellow Jacket Sightings

The most common sign of yellow jackets is actually seeing them flying around your yard, garden, house, flowers, or other areas.

Visible Nests

Some species of yellow jackets make paper nests above ground. Some of these can be located in trees, on house siding, in window frames, hanging under soffits, or on posts.

Hidden Nests

Several species of yellow jackets make nests underground. Others may make nests under siding, inside soffits, or in similar hidden areas. No matter where they’re nesting, it’s critical to get rid of yellow jackets wherever they live.

Important Things to Know About Yellow Jackets

  • A yellow jacket is a subtype of wasp
  • Because they’re wired to be social creatures, they are much more aggressive than other types of wasps, especially when they think their nest is in danger.
  • Yellow jackets are about the size of a standard housefly, but don’t be misled: they aren’t mild mannered.
  • To identify a yellow jacket, look for:
    • Smooth bodies, a small waist, relatively small body (½ in.), yellow and black striped markings
  • These insects are known to bite their target securely in order to get a tight grip while sliding their stinger into the skin. 
  • If you or someone you know is stung by a yellow jacket and experiences any of the following symptoms, contact a doctor immediately, as these are symptoms of a potentially life-threatening systemic reaction:
    • Hives
    • Rapid heartbeat
    • Constricted airway
    • Dizziness
    • Nausea or vomiting

Helpful Yellow Jacket Prevention Tips:  

  • Make or purchase Yellow Jacket Decoys to hang in areas they make nests
  • Limit food access around your yard and cover trash cans.
  • Ensure all door and window screens are in good repair.
  • Do not seal entryways as yellow jackets may already be inside walls.
  • Planting strong scented herbs like thyme, basil and peppermint can deter yellow jackets.

Yellow Jacket Control FAQ

Are yellow jackets dangerous?

For most people, a single sting doesn’t cause a big problem, other than painful swelling. Some people are allergic to these stings and need to get rid of yellow jacket infestations right away. These people need to be especially careful. If you are stung and are allergic, seek medical attention immediately.

What is anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis, or anaphylactic shock, is a life-threatening allergic reaction, usually caused by an insect sting. Symptoms include respiratory constriction, massive or irregular swelling, hives, irregular heart pace or rhythm, and more.

What is epinephrine?

Epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, is a hormone that helps restore heart speed and rhythm, open airways, and improve blood flow during anaphylaxis. It is often included as an injection for those who are allergic to insect stings. Yellow jacket removal can go along way to help with this, too.

Can yellow jackets only sting once?

Get rid of yellow jackets because, like other wasps, they can sting multiple times - unlike honey bees which can only sting once and then die.

Are yellow jackets beneficial to the environment?

In general, yellow jackets eat other bugs, including crop-destroying insects that cause problems for gardeners and farmers, which makes them beneficial in the wild.

Do yellow jackets eat pollen?

Some species of yellow jackets also eat flower nectar and pollen, just like bees, which means some yellow jackets help plants by pollination. Although, no pollinating insects are quite as efficient pollinators as native bees. If they become a nuisance, though, yellow jacket removal could be important for homeowners.

What do yellow jackets eat?

While all yellow jackets eat meat of one kind or another, some types also eat flower nectar and pollen.

Do yellow jackets make honey?

Yellow jackets don’t make honey, but they regurgitate pollen for their larvae to eat. If they become a nuisance, though, yellow jacket removal could be important for homeowners.

Do yellow jackets pollinate flowers?

Ttechnically they are pollinators, but they aren’t nearly as good at it as native bees and honey bees.

What are the differences between wasps, hornets, bumblebees, yellow jackets, and honey bees?

Wasp. This is a general term that describes any flying insect that can sting multiple times, eats meat, and is either solitary or makes colonies.
Hornets, paper wasps, yellow jackets, and mud daubers are all types of wasps.

Bumblebees have round, fuzzy bodies and stubby wings. They are usually black and yellow. They are closely related to wasps, but they aren’t wasps or bees.

Bees. Of all the thousands of bee species, they all have hairy bodies, short wings, and at least some hairs, though some kinds are fuzzy. They can be black and yellow or completely black.
The most well-known types of bees are honey bees and carpenter bees.
