- Yellowjackets: Yellow jackets are the most common wasps in Georgia. They are very aggressive and cause painful stings. Yellowjackets are often found in tree hollows, attics, wall voids, and roof soffits.
- Bald-faced hornets: These are the most aggressive hornets. Bald-faced hornets are black with white or yellow markings. Their paper nests are often found attached to homes, porch ceilings, trees, and other structures. They attack in large numbers, causing painful stings and possible anaphylaxis.
- Paper wasps: This type of wasp is not as aggressive as others but will attack if provoked or threatened. Their nests are often found on window frames, deck railings, and roof soffits.
- Carpenter bees: Carpenter bees burrow into wood structures to lay their eggs. A drone or two is left near the site as a lookout. They look similar to bumble bees, but don’t be fooled. Carpenter bees can cause damage to homes, sheds, garages, wood decks, wood lawn furniture, and playground equipment.
The importance of honeybees for pollinating our food and the dangers they face have been well documented. Accurately identifying the type of bees or wasps on your property is important for selecting the right methods to provide a solution for every problem.
Methods used for bee and wasp control include:
- Structural modification
- Physical removal
Often, wasps and bees start off building small nests or hives. As the colony grows, their nests become bigger and spread. When you notice hornets and yellowjackets, it is best to call a pest control specialist before the colony gets even bigger. Your pest control technician can identify the pests, remove them, and provide tips for preventing new infestations.
