Yellow Jackets

Latin Name: Vespula spp. and Dolichovespula spp.

Yellow jackets are a predatory wasp that colonizes and are social hunters. Often yellow jackets are easily identifiable by their yellow and black pattern. Nesting typically occurs in stumps, logs, or soil cavities. It is not uncommon to find yellow jackets nesting in a wall cavity of a home. When provoked, yellow jackets become very aggressive in nature and can sting multiple times. Stings tend to be very painful and can be a cause for concern for those individuals who are allergic. It’s important to hire a professional exterminator to avoid injury when it comes to removing yellow jackets form your home.
