Had a group start building a hive in a hole in my brick wall. I’ve looked all over but can’t find a picture that looks likes this. Does anyone know what kind they are? Thanks!
Most likely an Eastern yellow jacket. They mainly have a nests in the ground but will nest in a cavity such as yours as well.I’m in northern delaware. I was hit by 57 ground hornets when I was 7 years old. No adverse reaction so I guess I’m not allergic but I’m not looking for a repeat lol. I just have to find a way to get that nest removed and seal up the hole I guess. Just curious as to what they were. I’d never seen a mud nest that looked like that. Thanks for the reply!
I wouldn't wait until it cools off. I'd go in and get them now. See, right now, they are coming and going all day long while it is warm so with the seven dust laying on their pathways, they will track that into their nest. I think that will be more effective for you.In fact,this same daytime treatment to rid the yellow jackets was mentioned at the beekeeper's meeting just yesterday when somebody else brought it up so it must be a good plan.Thanks for the help! I’ve been sitting directly under them for the last few months and they haven’t bothered me yet. Think I’ll wait until it cools off a bit and go after them. Appreciate the replies!
