Orlando Yellow Jacket Nest: Don't Try This!

When it comes to Bees and Yellow Jackets, sometimes I feel like the good folks at Mythbusters when Adam Savage says "Don't Try This!"

This photo shows a client's attempt at smothering a yellowjacket nest in his backyard. He attempted to put a pot over the opening and then shoveled sand over it to smother it. His girlfriend said he came running in the house covered with Yellow Jackets and all wide eyed and in shock. He's lucky to be alive. We see many severe injuries and even deaths from these very defensive wasps.

Bee Safe, contact us, the Stinging Insect Experts at 800-343-5317 for proper Yellow Jacket removal. Remember, our services are most likely cheaper than any Emergency Room Visit!
