Yellow Jackets in East Cobb
One of the peskiest of pests in East Cobb, GA, is the yellow jacket. Though they are often mistaken for bees, they are actually a type of wasp. A quick visual inspection should help you figure out what type of bug you are looking at. Whereas bees have a rounded body covered in hair, wasps have a clearly defined waist between the thorax and the abdomen.
Yellow jackets are scavengers. In the wild they go after nectar as well as hunting small insects. Around humans, yellow jackets are attracted to meats and anything sweet. Outdoor picnics or even just garbage that is left exposed can attract yellow jackets.
Yellow jackets tend to make their nests close to the ground. Yellow jacket nests can be found underneath steps or porches, as well as at the base of trees or in small cracks in sidewalks or patios. Nests can also be found higher up in man made spaces, like in ceiling corners of outdoor buildings, under eaves, or on the underside of a deck.
Treating for Yellow Jackets
Yellow jackets are a useful predator of some insects that can cause damage to homes and property. Because of this, it is recommended to only go after nests that pose a stinging threat to people or pets. Unlike bees, yellow jackets can sting multiple times, though they tend to sting only when protecting their nests. For that reason, if a nest is in an area that sees a lot of human or pet traffic, it may be a good idea to treat the nest to avoid the threat of yellow jacket stings.
Nests can be treated with insecticide powders or with aerosol sprays. A pest control specialist, like those at People’s Pest Control, may treat a nest after dark, when the yellow jackets are less active. When treating a nest, there is always a danger of attack by a large number of yellow jackets, so it can be useful to call in a professional. Once the yellow jackets in that nest are dead, the abandoned nest can be safely removed.
To treat yellow jacket infestations and many other pest and bug infestations, all you have to do is call People’s Pest Control. We’re here to help with a no cost, no obligation estimate. We’ll also stick with you and set up a quarterly treatment plan to prevent future infestation.
