Bee Control Pittsburgh Warning Yellow Jackets Are Not for Wearing

Yellow jackets have arrived in Pittsburgh. Bee Control Pittsburgh is the premier company for insect
removal, extermination and prevention.

Pittsburgh, PA, July 28, 2010 --( Bee Control, Pittsburgh's leading company dealing with the
prevention, control and removal of stinging insects, is now tackling the arrival of yellow jackets.

Yellow jackets (also referred to as ground bees) are now making their increasing presence felt in yards
and homes in the Greater Pittsburgh area and the staff at Bee Control are responding to calls for yellow
jacket removal. As many people may be aware, yellow jackets are one of the most vindictive insects
when it comes to attacking and inflicting painful stings, not only to humans but also pets.

During August and September yellow jacket colonies will reach populations of up to 2,000 insects in each
nest, with each yellow jacket capable of stinging their victim repeatedly if disturbed. Nests are
constructed underground, in trees and shrubs, on buildings and perhaps the most unsettling, inside the
walls, ceilings and attics of people's homes. Signs of an infestation include seeing the insects coming and
going from a common entry point in the ground or at points on your home, the building of a gray papery
nest on branches, light posts, window corners and other areas on or near your home, scratching noises
from within the walls or ceilings and/or discolored areas or spots that look “wet” on walls or ceilings.
Yellow jackets are notorious for “chew-throughs” where the colony, as it continues to grow, chews away
paper, cardboard, wood, and even drywall to make room for the rapidly growing colony, often leaving
only a thin layer of paper or paint.

If you believe you have a yellow jacket colony in or around your home:
- Do not try to close up the entrance of the colony, the insects will panic and spread throughout the home.
- Do not spray the colony from the outside, as it will force the insects further into your home, often into
the living space.
- Do not use gasoline, kerosene or any other explosive product to “burn out” the colony.
- Do not poke or touch any discolored or wet spots on walls or ceilings, as breaking the barrier will
agitate the aggressive insects.

If yellow jackets have already chewed through a wall, try to cover the opening with a piece of cardboard
and tape to secure the opening or close all doors to the room if possible and seal the bottom with a towel.
