Pests We Treat Photo Album: Yellow Jackets Terrorize Homeowners in Tinton Falls, NJ
The yellow jackets were preventing the elderly resident from leaving her home!
By the Flashing
As we started inspecting the home, we noticed a number of yellow jackets hovering around the side flashing by the front door.
They Were Nesting
Turns out, they were nesting in a small gap underneath the flashing! 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.
Yellow Jackets Will Be Exterminated
To exterminate the yellow jackets quickly, we liberally treated the gap with a knockdown dusting application. After a short while, we removed the nest and disposed of it properly. Before we left, we treated the area with a liquid residual. This application will eliminate any yellow jackets that return to the area as well as prevent them from building another nest.
