yellow jacket our inside my ceiling will they die off over the winter?
1) Locate the nest. If you are not sure exactly where the nest is located, use a listening device to hone in as close as possible to the exact location.
2) Drill small holes directly into the nest from inside of the structure. If it is not possible to drill from the inside, the drilling can be done outside. If you do this, be sure to leave any outside entrance holes open until the beginning of fall when hatching is sure to be completed. Then the entrance may be sealed to prevent further nest establishment.
4) Seal any inside holes.
5) Repeat in 3 to 4 months to control for newly hatched yellow jackets.
