Gainesville Yellow Jackets Tri-Fecta!

3 GainesvilleYellow Jacket Nests !
We were called out to a Gainesville apartment complex to treat and remove one Yellow Jacket nest that was located about a foot away from a walkway leading to an apartment entry. Upon arrival, I always take time to do a proper inspection, and boy am I glad I did!

I found not one, but THREE Yellowjacket nests within a 10 foot radius, and all were quite active. I always notify residents that are nearby, and it turns out that one of the residents is severely allergic to bee and wasp stings. So allergic that he has 7 epi-pens in his car and home, and once nearly died from ONE sting while on duty. (He's a Law Enforcement Officer).

This just highlights the potential dangers, liability and risk that we deal with on a daily basis, and our client was prudent in hiring us, as our first priority is the safety of people and pets. Our treatment and removal protocol is designed to minimize the numbers of defensive stinging insects flying during AND after the yellowjacket nest removal. Your typical pest control technician has no clue how to protect you and your residents, pets or loved ones.

Bee safe, call on us to reduce your stings, your risk and your liability. Call us at 800.343.5317 or email here for an appointment.
