Yellowjackets are the most aggressive in defending their nest. They can be distinguished from bees by their thin “waists.” Bees are thick-wasted. Yellow jackets fold their wings lengthwise when at rest. If a colony is disturbed, the yellow jackets can become very aggressive and sting. Make sure to inspect for yellow jacket nests, before mowing the lawn or using trimmers. For most people, the yellow jacket sting is temporary, but painful. However for allergic individuals, a single sting may result in a serious reaction that requires medical treatment.

We just had A1 Bee Specialists out to remove 2 bald faced hornets nests. One was in a tree about 8 feet off the ground, and one was attached to a peak on the house. Carvin removed both of them and treated the area to prevent more queens from making it their home. Thank you Carvin for the excellent service! I will be sure to recommend your company to others with bee/wasp issues.
