Why You Should Avoid Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jacket

It is that time of year again! That time of year when we start seeing pests become more prominent. Pests like yellow jackets! As the weather becomes comfortable for these flying, stinging insects, you will start to see more and more of them. Unlike bees, these stinging pests do not lose their stinger and they do possess the ability to deliver repeated stings. This is only one of the reasons that homeowners should never try and remove yellow jackets on their own!

Yellow jackets, much like bees, hornets, and wasps, inject venom with their sting. When they sting, the result will be instant pain, followed by swelling, redness, and itching. In worst-case scenarios, the venom can cause an allergic reaction and result in extreme discomfort. An allergic reaction from a yellow jacket sting can ultimately result in death if untreated. Some symptoms of an allergic reaction can be swelling of the throat, hives, difficulty breathing, nausea, and stomach cramps. If you experience these systems from a yellow jacket sting, you must seek medical attention immediately. The best way to avoid a yellow jacket sting is to avoid yellow jackets entirely, which is why professional services are always your best option when dealing with them.

The major benefit of calling in the professionals is that it keeps you out of harm’s way. Many DIY methods put you in close vicinity of the nest. Agitating the nest while near it is a recipe for disaster.
