Paper Wasp and Yellow Jacket Exterminators

Wasps and yellow jackets are beneficial most of the time as they feed on other insects. When wasps locate their nests too close to human activity, they become a nuisance. During spring and early summer each year, wasps begin to build open-celled paper-like nests that resemble an umbrella. This result sin paper wasp activity primarily occurring in early to mid summer in Western New York. On the other hand, yellow jackets are typically most active between July and October. Nests are commonly found on undersides of eaves, soffits, deck/porch rails, window & door frames, undersides of stairs/decks, porch ceilings, mailboxes, lights, yard play sets, pool edges, behind shutters, and in other household crevices.

How Big is a Wasps Nest?

Nest size can range from a few to a few hundred wasps. Paper nest wasps can have between 20 and 50 individuals, and yellow jackets can have hundreds of wasps in their nest. Wasps are normally non-aggressive unless their nest is disturbed when they sting readily. Eliminate common conditions that support wasp activity by:

  • Keeping trash collection areas clean
  • Store garbage in sealed bags
  • Seal holes in exterior surfaces along rooflines, siding and storm windows

Wasp and Yellow Jacket Removal

The best treatment for control of paper wasp and yellow jacket problems is to locate and eliminate their nests. Professional pest extermination assistance is helpful to lessen the possibility of being stung and to increase the likelihood that as many wasp nests as possible are located. Proper materials and specialized application equipment allows as many adult wasps to be killed during initial treatment as possible. This helps reduce new nests being built by worker wasps that are absent during treatment. Nests should be removed after treatment.
