    Wasp and Yellowjacket Exterminator

    Wasps in Missouri and Kansas

    Yellowjackets and wasps are some of the more dangerous pests to find in and around your home. They can be highly aggressive and like to build their nests tucked away. They tend to be attracted to your home because of all the nooks they have to choose from. You will often see a nest in attics, between walls, under eaves, and inside recycling bins where sugars are common.

    Both wasps and yellowjackets are aggressive and, unlike bees, they can sting multiple times plus they have a tendency to bite. Yellowjackets are responsible for most of the stinging deaths in the US. So, it is vital that you take care of them when they become a problem and that you do so safely and quickly.

    I recently needed pest control services and reached out to Blue Beetle. Mitch and his staff are extremely knowledgeable. They made sure I was taken very good care of. Blue Beetle still offers good old fashion customer service. I will definitely use them again.

    Jasper did a very thorough review of our entire property – inside, outside and in the garage as well. He also provided good information regarding solutions for our carpenter ant issue. I would highly recommend Blue Beetle.

    As an owner of a daycare center, nothing is more important than providing the best care for our children. And there is nothing worse than nasty pests (bugs, spiders, ants) invading our space! There are literally hundreds of extermination companies to choose from so I called 3 to see who could provide the best help. Well, I couldn’t be more impressed with Blue Beetle. I immediately got a call back from the nicest most professional sales manager, Reggie Gray. He was beyond professional, concerned and attentive to our needs over the phone. But even more impressive was he was out at our facility within the hour. I didn’t have to pay a service charge or sign a contract but this guy was out there because he seemed to genuinely care about the kids (and our business) almost as much as me. Lol I think he had just started working for the company but his knowledge, attention to detail and communications were top notch. Well, I didn’t call him back right away so instead of being all aggressive, he sent me the nicest card just reminding me that he was here to help if I needed their service. I was SOLD! And even better, he was able to work within my budget. The tech came out and was equally as professional and of course, Mr. Gray called the same day just to check on my experience with their service. Feels like I just wrote a book (lol) but if you want the best service all around, then Blue Beetle Pest is the call to make! Thanks again!

    Everyone thinks of pest control and exterminators as scary bug guys with dangerous chemicals. I did too. But after I was referred to Blue Beetle by an apartment building owner I know, I am pleased to say they shattered that misconception.He told me that Reggie Gray, their commercial sales manager has really impressed him and that I should try their services too. I couldn't have been more pleased. Professional, affordable, on-time, and best of all... no more pests! It worked like a charm. I've already recommended them to three other friends and if, for some reason, I'm ever bothered by pests again and need an exterminator, I'll definitely be calling Blue Beetle.

    I am distraught with Blue Beetle Pest Contol. They charged my debit card $169.00 without rendering a service. Lisa failed to let me know that Blue Beetle Pest Control charged the day of service when I had to call to cancel because of my landlord. When I called to speak to a manager several times, the representative had a language barrier and had me on hold. Then, Lisa rushed me off the phone, and the manager, Debra, had a voice greeting that sounded as if she was lethargic. I will never do business with them again because they can not be trusted with your personal information or debit card. I still need to be refunded. I plan to take further action.

    Initial contact was a little rough, I made my first call after 8a.m. on a Monday morning. No one answered so I left a message. I received a text in response and responded with a text. Finally, it was getting late in the day that I was concerned I would not get an appointment scheduled before the end of the day so I called again. I was able to set up an appointment for Tuesday. Tuesday went smoothly, Corey arrived in a timely manor, and was wonderful to work with. He was impressed that I actually had all the items out of my kitchen cabinets.

    We recently had our initial service - all around very pleased! Oliver was fantastic and went above & beyond! He was professional, personable, and incredibly knowledgable. He was thorough with his inspection & treatment/spraying process. He even took the time to provide helpful tips & tricks for preventing pests in the future. We’re looking forward to our next service - highly recommend!!

    How to Identify a Wasp Nest?

    wasp and yellow jacket pest control in Kansas City

    Wasps and yellowjackets are part of the bee family, but are much more aggressive and don’t lose their stinger after the first sting. They typically don’t have the fur that bees have and are much more slender and narrow. Most have yellow and black markings, but white and orange markings aren’t unheard of. They range in size, but most are about an inch long.

    You typically know you have a problem when you begin to see multiple wasps swarming around a certain area. Nests aren’t always visible from the outside. Even if you haven’t found a nest, if you start to see multiple wasps consistently buzzing around and hear crackling inside the walls or ceiling, it is time to look into treatment.

    Best Wasp & Yellowjacket Treatment?

    A “do it yourself” approach to yellowjacket removal works well for small problems when you have the proper protective equipment, but these are dangerous pests to deal with on your own. They are one of the most aggressive wasps and if you upset them and aren’t prepared you could be putting your life at risk. This is why we often recommend calling in professionals to handle wasp or yellowjacket infestations, especially if they are inside or the nest you are wanting to be removed is mature. Blue Beetle’s expert technicians are equipped to safely handle such situations and prevent you or a family member from risking their lives to remove these dangerous pests.

    An even better approach to wasp infestations is prevention. Keep your family safe by ensuring that wasps don’t get a chance to set up their hive near your home.

    Our Happy Home Program ensures that your home is always protected from infestations from the start. At Blue Beetle, we use a highly effective, family, and eco-friendly pest management approach that brings you the quick results you expect along with the long-term protection you deserve.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How to keep wasps and yellowjackets away from my home?

    To deter wasps and yellowjackets, regularly check for and remove nests (preferably with a professional’s help), avoid sweet scents outdoors, keep food and drinks covered, and use natural repellents like peppermint oil around common entry points. Also ensure trash bins are sealed tightly.

    What attracts wasps and yellowjackets to my property?

    These pests are drawn to sweet foods, smaller insects, and accessible water. They nest in sheltered spots like eaves and attics. Additionally, bright clothing patterns and yard debris can unintentionally attract them.

    What are the common wasp nesting sites?

    Wasps and yellowjackets commonly nest in sheltered areas like tree branches, building eaves, attics, beneath decks, and in ground burrows. They can also inhabit garages, sheds, and hollow logs. Approach suspected nesting sites with caution to avoid aggressive behavior.
