Wasps, Hornets & Yellow Jackets Come Back in Summer!

One of the classic signs of summer is bees buzzing around the garden, pollinating the lovely flowers around Seattle. But along with those friendly, important bees are much more dangerous, aggressive stinging insects. Hornets, wasps, yellow jackets and more come out in the summer and can be a risk to your home and family.

These nasty bugs love to build their nests under decks, eaves and window sills. Some even dig underground to build their homes. Keep an eye out for unusual numbers of stinging insects, and try to follow their flight to discover the nest. Once you find the hive, don't touch it -- you need professional wasp nest removal, hornet nest removal and yellow jacket nest removal.

(Note: Eastside Exterminators does not remove or disturb beehives, due to the environmental importance of bees. Instead, we will refer to a professional beekeeper who can take care of the issue safely.)
