Hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets can be some of the worst pests in New York. These swarming insects have painful stings, and they are horrible to live with. If you have hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets living near your New York home or office building, it’s time to call the pest control services of The Bug Stops Here exterminator team.
Adult hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets have a distinct yellow and black pattern, have a black head and thorax, a tiny waistline, and the wings are heavily veined. Wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets live worldwide. Some of the best known species include:
- American and European Yellow Jackets
- Baldfaced and White Faced Hornets
Wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets are all colonial insects that live in social groups. Each colony is established in the springtime by a queen, and they make a nest of paper made by mixing chewed wood with their saliva. They grow and develop in the summertime, feeding on nectar, sweet materials, and sometimes insect larvae. They continue to mate over winter and begin a new colony the following year. Adult hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets are extremely protective of their nests and will sting repeatedly if disturbed.
