Yellow jackets are wasps, not bees. The queen builds a paper nest in open areas like a tree branches or hidden areas like the in the ground or a wall void of your home. The colony can be disturbed very easily, and will swarm and sting its victim in order to protect the nest. The wasps can be forced into the living space of the home if treated improperly from the exterior entry point, or when colder weather moves in. Advantage Pest Control can treat, and in most cases totally remove the nest, with little if any disturbance to your daily routine or your home. Total elimination of the wasp colony is ALWAYS guaranteed.
