Yellow jackets are among the most aggressive stinging species a homeowner can face. To make matters worse, a yellow jacket nest in your yard can easily go unseen until the yellow jackets are disturbed, at which time they attack quickly and aggressively. Multiple stings are common. Yellow jackets may be particularly concerning for children and pets, who tend to be curious and may seek to explore a yellow jacket nest. 

Yellow jacket control is essential for maintaining a safe, pest-free yard. All-Safe Pest & Termite is ready to help you get yellow jackets out of your yard. We are your Plano pest control experts of choice. 

How To Tell If It's Yellow Jackets Hanging Around Your Yard

Yellow jackets themselves are very distinctive wasps. They have a clean, hairless appearance, with yellow and black banding around their abdomens. Yellow jackets will build nests almost anywhere. Above ground, they build either open nests or enclosed paper nests with singular openings. They will also build nests in any sheltered area that meets their needs. Yellow jacket nests can be quite large, with hundreds or even thousands of wasps. 

If you see flying insects that look like bees or wasps with yellow and black bands on their abdomens, do not get near them. If they are yellow jackets, they may become aggressive and are quick to sting to defend their nests. Instead, call All-Safe Pest & Termite. We know how to identify and how to get rid of yellow jackets.

The Dangers Of Trying To Remove A Yellow Jacket Nest Yourself

Attempting DIY pest removal for yellow jackets is not advisable. If they are up high, there is a chance you may fall if you try to get close. At ground level, efforts to use sprays are often generally unsuccessful because some yellow jacket nests are enclosed. Spraying even an open nest might miss some wasps, making them highly agitated. Once provoked, yellow jackets can swarm you and sting you repeatedly. Yellow jackets hiding in the ground can sense when you are approaching, and if they move to defend their nests, they can rely on excellent vision to chase you. Worse, you cannot run faster than yellow jackets can fly. If they see a reason to defend their nest, you will not be able to run away from them.

Five Eco-Friendly Yellow Jacket Prevention Tips For Your Yard

Here are some things you can do to keep yellow jackets out of your yard:

  1. Keep trash containers tightly sealed. Yellow jackets love sweets and meats.
  2. Don't give them easy access to food and water. If you do, they will come and stay.
  3. Inspect your property frequently. Catching yellow jackets early is key to preventing big battles later.
  4. Plant spearmint. Wasps of all kinds shun spearmint plants and will avoid your yard.
  5. Plant thyme. Thyme is also a great deterrent for all wasps. 

These are simple, eco-friendly ways to help repel wasps. Unfortunately, nothing can guarantee that yellow jackets won't come anyway. They are very resourceful and hard to manage effectively. 

If you discover that yellow jackets have moved in, you want them out fast. All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you with that. Call us today, and let us come to your aid with our years of experience and professionalism.
