Yellow Jackets are a very common sight here in the Treasure Valley and are yet another type of aggressive stinging insect. Yellow Jackets make their nests near the ground typically in the forest or wooded areas. We deal with yellow jacket extermination all summer and they are extremely aggressive. They tend to invite themselves to our picnics and bbq’s and when we shew them away they get upset and become aggressive. The Yellow Jacket can use its stinger multiple times and its venom is more potent than a honey bee, leave a painful sting site that may require medical attention. The female Yellow Jacket will survive through the winter and start to build a nest in the spring. Where the males die and are replaced from offspring the next year.

Wasps are very active from spring through fall and can cause serious injury to you or your loved ones.
They tend to nest under decks, roof eves, crawl spaces and other protected areas where they can build their nests. Here in the treasure valley we see some very large wasp nests and active communities.
The temperament of a wasp if very volatile and one should keep their distance. They tend to be most aggressive toward late summer into fall. However, they can be aggressive throughout the year and like to sting or bite first and ask questions later. Its best to deal with the wasps as soon as you can as they tend to invite their friends over for a party.

If you have Wasps trying to overtake your property, give Pest Control Service Boise a call today to exterminate and help prevent future nests.
Bald Face Hornets
Bald Face Hornets may not be “true” Hornets as they are related to Yellow Jackets. They sure to strike fear in the minds of many.
Commonly recognizable as being black bodies with white markings and about 13-20 mm. This is a very aggressive species and preys on other bees, wasps and flies but also is quick to attack humans if threatened. They are known to sting multiple times and are very aggressive.
We tend to find their nests away from homes and buildings. Occasionally, they do nest a little too close for comfort. Their nests are easily distinguishable as they look like a grey football hanging in a tree or under your roof. Each nest has a rather large population anywhere from 50-450 Bald Face Hornets, not something I’d want to disturb. If you have Hornets near you home in the Boise metro area.
