Yellow jackets Extermination
Several species of wasps  exist, each of different colors and sizes. Generally, the wasp’s long body  measures between 10 mm and 25 mm and is black with a yellow, white or brown  pattern. The thorax has wings and the head have two large compound eyes and a  pair of antennas.

General Information

Some species of wasps are  well adapted to urban areas. Although they do not cause damage, wasps are often  attracted to sweet substances such as fruits and juices. The female wasp can  inflict painful bites. In case of allergy, these stings can even be fatal.

The queen looks for a place  to build her nest after she is fertilized. Once she has built a sufficient  number of hexagonal cells, she begins to lay her eggs. In 20 days, the adult  wasps emerge. Although the lifespan of a wasp nest is no more than one season,  it can contain 10,000 to 30,000 wasps.

Preparing  for treatment


  1. The Protex Extermination specialist will inject an insecticide  directly into the nest, so make sure that you clear the space around the nest  and that you are not too close. The wandering wasps die when they return to the  treated nest or will leave if the nest is removed.
  2. These is no need to leave  your home. However, it is recommended not to approach the nest for 24 hours  after treatment, and to stay away from the treated area.
