Yellow Jackets are usually found nesting in the ground, but they can also inhabit railroad ties, wall voids and above ground locations.
Yellow Jackets feed on insects during the spring months. Spraying surrounding foliage with an appropriate insecticide helps reduce the population.
Yellow Jackets populations are largest during the fall months and can become a serious nuisance pest because they are aggressive toward anything they see as a threat.
To locate a yellow jacket nest, look during the hottest parts of the day, because they are most active at that time. You will see the workers entering and exiting a small hole in the ground if they've made the nest underground. Mark the entry points. Treat at night when the yellow jackets are the least active and most are in the nest.
Spraying Yellow Jacket Nests:
- Spray opening at night with pyrethrin aerosol-CB 80, CV-80 D, PT 656 or V One
- Wait until aerosol is dry (10-15 minutes)
- Dust opening with Tempo Dust, Evergreen or D Fense Dust

Invite Liquid Lure
Invite Liquid Lure is a distinct liquid attractant to lure small flying pests such as yellow jackets, fruit flies and European Hornets. This concentrated formulation contains no pesticides that can be used both inside and outside. It may be used in conjunction with fly traps as a lure/attractant or used in pesticide applications methods forming a "kill zone". To make a kill zone, spray a microcap formulation such as LambdaStar Ultracap 9.7 on a surface where flies land. Afterwards, spray Invite Liquid Lure on top the odorless, microcap insecticide spray to attract the flies in the sprayed area. After the flies land on this "kill zone", they come in contact with the insecticide and die.
Invite Liquid lure is also a perfect and economical lure for attracting small flying pests in fly stations or other types of fly jar traps.Learn More
