YELLOW JACKETS

This aggressive pest can be a pain if they happen to nest near your home and are flying about whenever you are outdoors. Even worse, they make their way indoors which will be unpleasant for everyone.

Yellow jackets are wasps that get their name from their black and yellow body segments and small size. Because of such they often are mistaken as bees. The best way to distinguish between bees and yellow jackets is the fact that yellow jackets have no hairs and have a brighter hue of yellow compared to bees, which are colored more golden brown. Yellow jackets are social and their nests can be found in a variety of places: from the underside of stairs, to wall voids in a building to long hanging branches. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products needed to successfully eliminate your yellow jacket problem.

 


HORNETS

Hornets are among the most dangerous and feared pests by homeowners when they are traveling around the yard or even worse, setting up a nest beside your home or a tree in your yard. A particularly troublesome characteristic of hornets are that unlike bees, hornets can and will sting a person an unlimited number of times. What makes it worse is that when hornets sting, they release pheromones out into the air which send a message to other hornets to join in and sting the same victim as well!

There are two kinds of hornets, one is the European hornet, which as the name suggests, is primarily found in Europe. The hornet that is more common to the United States is known as the bald-faced hornet which isn’t a hornet at all and is more closely related to yellow jackets. No matter the case, folks have been accustomed to calling this stinging pest a hornet. The difference between the yellow jacket and a bald-faced hornet (aside from the differences in size, color and hunting strategy) is the fact that a bald-faced hornet prefers to nest in aerial settings up in a tree or an outdoor corner of a house compared to a yellow jacket which mainly establishes nests underground. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products needed to successfully eliminate your hornet problem.


PAPER WASPS

Paper Wasps are most commonly dark brown in color, with black wings and yellow markings that may mistake them for yellow jackets sometimes. They get their name from the type of material they use to make their nests which is a mixture of plant material and their saliva which looks and feels like paper. These nests do not have an outer shell like most nests so the inner compartments are clearly visible showing the wasps moving in and out and laying eggs. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products needed to successfully eliminate your paper wasp problem.

 

 


CARPENTER BEES

This nuisance pest is unwelcomed in homes and if left untreated can be damaging especially to wood elements of your home. There are over 500 different species of Carpenter Bees and unlike other types of bees like the honey bee and bumble bee, the carpenter bee is a solitary creature and prefers to be left alone rather than coexist in large colonies. They are called “carpenter bees” because of their tendency build their nest in some type of wood. Carpenter bees are perhaps the most troublesome of the bees because of the damage they can cause to wood. Often confused with bumble bees, they are roughly the same size and color but are not as fuzzy. Female bumblebees can drill into wood and lay eggs. The holes they create in homes can be a problem which can lead to other insects using the holes to gain access into your home. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products needed to successfully eliminate your carpenter bee problem.


CICADA KILLERS

Cicada killers can grow to as big as three inches and length. They stand out not only in size but also in their menacing appearance with most cicada killers having a red body and a bright yellow stripe around the abdomen. Cicada killers are also known as Ground Digger Wasps because of their tendency to live in holes they make in the ground, where they live and nest.

Cicada killers are called as such because they like to hunt down and kill cicadas and locusts, paralyzing them with their stingers and carrying their bodies down to their underground holes to feast upon. Though not as aggressive as wasps and hornets, cicada killers will sting as a last resort out of self-defense if disturbed. Combine their large scary size, their ability to sting, and their habit of digging unsightly holes in yards to nest, this pest can be quite troublesome to deal with. Thankfully, ABET has all the professional tools and products needed to successfully eliminate your cicada killer problem.

ABET inspections was able to work around my schedule, which was awesome! I work out of town a lot and was only available on the weekends. They scheduled me on a time that they normally don’t conduct business, and I was able to get a thorough and professional inspection. Austin Messina was in, on, and around every nook and cranny of my soon to be home. He was able to point out miner details that I would have not been able to catch. Yes, I would certainly recommend ABET to friends and family. A special thanks to Katie for making my appointment happen in a resiculously timely manner.
