Pests We Treat Photo Album: Large In Ground Yellow Jacket Nest Too Close to the Deck in Freehold, NJ
We were sent out on a service call to a new customer in Freehold, NJ, to eliminate a large yellow jackets nest.
Bottom of the Deck
Right by the bottom of the deck was an active in-ground yellow jackets nest. The homeowners dog had already received multiple stings which prompted a visit to the veterinarian for treatment.
Yellow jackets are aggressive, territorial wasps, with distinctive yellow-and-black coloration, that are known for their propensity to sting anyone and anything that they perceive as a threat, such as those who venture too close to their nests or their food.
Dusting Treatment for Yellow Jackets
To exterminate the yellow jackets quickly, we liberally treated the burrow with a knockdown dusting application.
Yellow Jackets are Gone
A short while later, we dug up the nest, disposed of it, and then filled in the burrow.
