  • What are yellow jackets?

    Yellow jackets are a type of predatory wasp species that is well-known for its yellow and black striped pattern. They have segmented bodies, a strong pair of wings, and a stinger located on the bottom of their bodies. Yellow jackets are recognized for their aggressive nature and their tendency to swarm what they perceive as threats to their nest.

    If you need help with yellow jacket identification, don’t hesitate to contact California Exterminators Alliance. Our technicians will help identify the species of wasp on your property and provide you with expert removal solutions. Reach out to us today for pest control in Sonoma County.

  • Are yellow jackets dangerous?
    Yellow jackets are a dangerous stinging insect to encounter due to the pain their stings bring, in addition to the risk of allergic reactions. Because yellow jackets are known for swarming and many stings may be received from this pest at once, individuals without preexisting allergic issues may suffer from severe allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis. Symptoms of a yellow jacket sting that require immediate medical treatment include difficulty breathing and trouble swallowing, or extreme pain and swelling. Professional yellow jacket control helps you avoid these dangers.
  • Why do I have a yellow jacket problem?
    Yellow jackets are meat-eaters that are attracted to properties that provide them with easy food access, such as access to pest prey, meats (hamburgers, sandwich meat, steak) and drinks, in addition to lots of moisture and safe nesting areas. If you want to deter yellow jacket problems, remove the factors that might be attracting this pest to your Sonoma County property.
  • Where will I find yellow jackets?
    Yellow jackets may be found in a variety of places, and yellow jacket nests are often seen high up in trees, in holes in the ground, under the eaves of porches and decks, or in attics. If you are having trouble getting rid of yellow jackets in the ground, in your property’s trees, or even a yellow jacket nest in the attic, contact California Exterminators Alliance right away.
