The Yellow Jackets are hunting for sweet foods, sweet liquids and meat. In the middle of the season in July and June, yellowjackets are drawn to protein sources. Such as hamburgers on the barbecue grill. Yellowjacket colonies are started by just one queen and can grow to include anywhere from 400 to 5,000 workers later in the season. Which brings the stinging pests into frequent and direct contact with humans. Yellowjackets can be unpredictable and very aggressive. Especially in late summer when the colonies are at the largest. Taking precautions can help avoid being stung. The Yellow jackets do attack humans and this can be deadly if any of the people have allergies and get stung.
Yellowjackets are very aggressive. More so than other stinging insects such as Hornets, Mud Daubers, Bees and Wasps. Yellowjackets can sting and bite.Since the pests do not lose the stinger, it can sting many times. Yellowjackets don’t play around and vigorously protect the nests. Swarm attacks can and will occur if someone accidentally steps in or hits a nest opening. Thus, mowing lawns can be hazardous during the late summer season.

With Most pest control services, yellow jacket treatment program begins with a thorough inspection and correct identification from your pest control professional. This is important since yellow jackets usually build their nests below ground, but they may also build them in hidden, protected locations above ground. Once the nest is located, The pest control professional can use the most effective control products and methods to help eliminate control the yellow jackets within the nest.
The treatment products used by the pest control professional consist of various insecticide dust and aerosol products that will be used in accordance with the product’s label. The specific products and application methods will generally depend on whether the nest is above or below ground. For below ground nests, the most likely product of choice is an insecticide dust. The dust is applied to the below ground part of the nest and to the nest entrance. Since during the daytime there are numerous yellow jackets that are outside of the nest searching for prey, the nest entrance is left open so any returning nest members will come in contact with the product and die. For aerial nests, usually the use of either a dust or aerosol product is best. For aerial nests, The pest control professional may decide to perform the treatment work after dark when most all of the nest members are within the nest. Once the nest is inactive, it can be removed and destroyed.

If the entrance is sealed, members of the nest will try to escape the void through the inside of the structure.
