Africanized bees will aggressively defend the hive. More bees will attack and more stings are likely. They can be triggered by the sound of a lawn mower or a home owner stumbling onto or even a near a nest. 

These bees also swarm more often but they are more dangerous when they have a nest they are defending then when they are swarming. If you have a nest or you see a large number of bees on your property. Call us. Only an expert can tell the difference visually.

Bee, Wasp & Hornet Treatment

One of our bee specialists will come to your home to perform a free inspection, fully equipped to eliminate your pest problem. We will identify the location of the nest, depending on the type of stinging insect problem you have, and eliminate the problems to protect your family’s health and safety. In the case of a hornets’ nest, the technician will treat the nest and return to remove it after insuring that all the wasps have been killed.

Yellow Jackets and Hornets are actually wasps. They are distinguished from bees by their thin waist and lack of fuzz. They are black and yellow and approximately 5/8 to 1 inch in length.

They also fold their wings lengthwise when at rest.

They will prey on other insects as well as forage for food that people eat, especially meat and sweets.

A colony will remain active for one summer. The queen will leave to start a new colony.

If a colony is disturbed they could become aggressive and sting. They become more aggressive towards the end of the summer as the colony has grown and they search for food.

Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets nest outside mostly in the ground or in railroad ties. Inside they will nest in wall and ceiling voids and occasionally in the attic.

We recommend that sanitation measures be taken to insure that all food sources are eliminated. All food trash should be in tightly closed plastic bags in closed trash containers. Barbecues and the area around the barbecue should be cleaned thoroughly to insure that there is no food debris that will attract Yellow Jackets.

Our trained technicians will identify the location of the nest and eliminate the problems to protect your health and safety.


BALDFACED HORNETS is a type of Yellow Jacket that gets its name from its mostly black color and its white face.

They are very aggressive if their nest is disturbed. The nest usually contains thousands of wasps.

They live in aerial nests that resemble an inverted tear drop that is attached to a tree, a bush, a utility pole, a shed, an overhang or on the side of a building.

The pregnant females will overwinter in protected places. The nest will grow as time passes if not eliminated. A nest might only be the size of a softball early in the season but if left can grow much larger. If the pregnant females, who overwinter in a protected place, are able to overwinter in the current nest, these nests can grow to be the size of watermelons or larger.

The technician will treat the nest and return to remove it after insuring that all the wasps have been killed. Call us now and a technician let you know the best course of action.
