Wasps and bees are generally considered beneficial insects. But nests in and around your home that may be a possible threat to you, your children, and your pets should be treated.

Not all wasps and bees are aggressive or likely to sting, but a healthy respect for these insects is recommended.

Yellow jackets can sting repeatedly and become very aggressive when defending their nest. Their sting is painful and humans can develop an allergy to their venom, making any later sting possibly life-threatening.

Some yellow jackets, when nesting in a house, can chew through the drywall into living or work areas, posing a direct threat to occupants.

Wasp and Bee Problem in Kitsap County, WA

Our local stinging insects of concern are yellowjackets, bald-faced hornets, paper wasps, honeybees and bumblebees.

Wasps come in a variety of shapes and colors and can be distinguished from bees by their smooth, rather than hairy, bodies. Some species are solitary, while others live in colonies of up to thousands of individuals.

Wasps tend to be very protective of their nests and will defend against invaders with painful stings. Most wasp colonies die in the winter, with only fertilized queens living over the winter to start a new colony next year.

Bees are less aggressive than wasps and tend to leave humans alone if not provoked. Their diet consists of nectar and pollen.

Yellow jackets get their name from their yellow-and-black striped color patterns. They are generally considered beneficial because they mainly eat other insects, many of which are pests. They usually make their “paper” nests in underground cavities, but are frequently also found in bushes, trees and the wall voids or attics of buildings

Getting Help from a Professional Bee Treatment Service Includes 2 Steps: Inspection and Treatment


  • Wasp and bee nests can usually directly be observed by you. The situation will be evaluated to determine the safest method to treat the nest.
  • In cases where the nest is not evident yet bees or wasps are present, we’ll do a thorough inspection to determine if a nest is present and if treatment is necessary.


  • Control methods will depend on the nest type and location. Some nests can be physically removed from branches or home even without the use of chemical products.
  • Other nests require a chemical spray or dust application. Nests treated this way are usually inactive in a few hours to a few days.
