Yellow Jacket Wasp
Our remedy for yellow jacket wasp control
First, contact us. Yellow jackets are significant threats due to the fact that they can sting repeatedly and are very territorial. They can also do some serious damage to the structure of homes once they get in and build nests inside wall voids. If you see these wasps going in and out of an opening on the outside of your home or business, it generally means there’s an established nest that’s thriving inside the wall void. It’s important to seek professional expertise to avoid being stung and to pinpoint where the colony is to get it properly treated. Yellow jackets can be a difficult pest to control if you aren’t familiar with their habits. Sealing off an entry could push a colony further into living spaces indoors without treating the nest first.

How to Identify a Yellow Jacket Wasp
Golden yellow with black markings; most species are about 3/8 to 5/8″ in length.
Yellow jackets are found near humans most of the time and are most active in late sumner and early autumn when a colony is at its peak. They build paper nests out of chewed up cellulose on eaves, in attics, in the ground, or other similar cavernous areas.
Yellow jackets feed on sweets and proteins, which is why you’ll see them at picnics or other similar outdoor events.

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!
“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
