A fairly common pest in the Carolinas, yellowjackets are notorious for being aggressive and stinging anyone they perceive as a threat. Understandably, nobody wants these on their property. If someone is allergic to yellowjackets, the sting is much more of a threat.
By learning more about yellowjackets, you will stand a better chance of controlling the problem and not being stung.
To effectively fight these pests, you need to understand what they look like and what they do:
If you’re afraid of yellowjacket stings, particularly if someone has an allergy, you can take solid steps to eliminate or reduce the problem. The most effective way of controlling the yellowjacket population is to locate and destroy the nest. Because there can be hundreds of yellowjackets protecting a nest, that’s a dangerous task best left to professionals with the right training and gear.
You might not be able to locate the nest since it might be situated on a property a good distance from yours. If that’s the case, you can still take steps to make the area less attractive.
If you’ve found a yellowjacket nest on your property, removing it is extremely dangerous.
