Nest Removal

Yellow jacket or wasp nest got you worried? Have one of our licensed and trained technicians come out and treat the nest quickly so you can focus on more important things. Activity in the wasp or hornet nest will typically subside within 24 hours; however we ask that you allow 3-5 days for complete control. After 5 days has passed, the nest can be removed if desired. We can come out and do this for an additional charge. You can also do this yourself. However, removing the physical nest is not necessary, as wasps and hornets will not reinhabit the nest. Some nests, such as nests in wall voids cannot be retrieved.

 

Wasps

 

Often confused with yellow jackets, Polistes wasps are also a yellow and black paper wasp, but they are a little longer, a little narrower, and the legs are much longer, easily visible hanging beneath the wasps as they fly. The nests are small, and are composed of a single open plate of cells.

 

Hornets

The most common type of hornet found in the Seattle region is the bald-faced hornet. Although they can be beneficial because they prey on other pests, they are extremely aggressive and can be dangerous if their nest is close to humans. They can be identified by their black bodies and white markings.

 

Bees

Bees are a beneficial insect but can be dangerous if there is a nest close to your home. A bee sting can be quite painful but also life threatening if the victim is allergic. Treatment of a bee infestation is different than that of a wasp infestation so proper identification is crucial.

 

Yellow Jackets

Aggressive, poisonous, and easily agitated. Yellowjacket queens may build their nests virtually anywhere – in a hollow in the ground, hanging in a tree, hanging beneath eaves, in an attic or crawlspace, or in a wall void are common locations.
