At some time or another, you probably have come into contact with insects that can sting. Stinging insects include wasps, hornets, bumble bees, and yellow jackets, honey bees and carpenter bees. While the sting itself from these insects is not usually terribly painful, a serious problem can arise if you have an allergic reaction to the sting. For that reason, stinging insects can prove to be a dangerous pest. All County Pest Control offers yellow jacket extermination and control services in Putnam, Dutchess, and Westchester counties.
Yellow jackets are thin with black and yellow markings. They make their nests in the ground or inside logs that are near to the ground. They will sometimes build their nests inside the walls of houses, too, and these can become quite large. Yellow jacket nests are made of a paper maché-like material, and because they are often at ground level, it is rather easy to disturb their nest, even accidentally. Nests in ceilings & walls have been known to break through unexpectedly.
Dealing with yellow jackets nesting in a structure can be very difficult. You should call on a yellow jacket exterminator immediately. More harm than good can happen when inexperienced home owners attempt to deal with these situations. Yellow Jacket nests can be very large in size, depending on the time of year, and can easily house over 1,000 – 1,500 bees. Treating just from the exterior or sealing up entrance holes can be counter productive and force the bees to migrate through your walls and into living areas.
All County’s professional service technician will evaluate your particular situation, taking into consideration structural needs. In most cases drilling and injection of wall / ceiling voids will be needed, and in some instances opening up and removal of hives is unavoidable. All County Pest Control will concentrate on the specific nest area and focus it’s energy until the problem is resolved.
