How to Stop the Spread of Yellow Jacket Nests On Your Property

One of the most important preventative pest control actions you can take in the fall is to eliminate all yellow jacket nests on your property.

Why Eliminate Yellow Jacket Nests In the Fall?

Each yellow jacket nest can spawn 20 or more nests on your property next spring, each with 5000 or more ill-tempered yellow jackets! Imagine 100,000 yellow jackets in and around your home, garage, garden…

How Does One Yellow Jacket Nest Turn Into 20 or More?

By fall, the yellow jacket nest has reached peak size. The nest is filled with reproductive cells containing new males and queens. The new queens build up fat reserves to overwinter. Adult reproductives leave the parent colony to mate. After mating, males quickly die, while fertilized queens seek protected places to overwinter in covered natural locations such as tree stumps, hollow logs and under wood piles or yard debris, although they may also choose manmade structures for shelter.

In spring, the queens emerge from their winter shelters and each begin to build a nest from plant fibers that they chew, making a type of paper. Where there was just one nest last fall, now there are many, each with their own queen! Each queen begins laying eggs in her new nest.

Many Yellow Jacket Nests On Your Property, Growing In Size

Throughout the summer, the nests continue to grow. As adults, the first offspring are sterile female workers that expand the nest, search for food and care for the queen and her young. After her first generation matures, the yellow jacket queen remains inside the nest laying eggs for the rest of the summer. The new nests grow to a size of 5000 yellow jackets or more by fall and the cycle repeats.

Fall Is the Best Time to Stop the Spread of Yellow Jacket Nests On Your Property

Want to avoid 20 or more yellow jacket nests on your property next spring? The solution is to have ApolloX Pest Control find and eliminate any seed nests this fall.
