Serving Mercer, Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex County
The resident saw the yellow jackets coming out of a hole in the ceiling of the living room and tried plug it with a paper towel. Unfortunately, she got stung multiple times and had to be sent to the emergency room.
We investigated and realized that the nest was up in the attic.
Once up in the attic, we had to remove some of the insulation in order to find the nest and properly treat it. Once we did, we applied a residual aerosol product, waited a few minutes and then applied a dusting application. Both of these products will eliminate the yellow jackets almost immediately.
Once all the yellow jackets were neutralized, we removed the nest, disposed of it, and cleaned up the area.
After everything was done, we went to the Management Office and told them that all the yellow jackets were eliminated. They then sent out a crew to patch the hole in the living room.
