These pictures show Ted removing a Yellow Jacket nest from the ceiling of a customers house in Auburn CA. The customer called us when he saw what looked like a water stain on the ceiling of his daughter’s room. After hearing a chewing and buzzing noise coming from the area he realized it was some kind of wasp and gave us a call.
What appears to be a water stain is actually what is left of the sheet rock. The Yellow Jackets had chewed through most of the sheet rock and only the paper on the outside remained. This means they were very close to breaking through and would be able to enter the room. Once that happens, they will become very aggressive and will bite and sting anyone close by.
If you ever come across a situation like this give us a call. Yellow Jackets are very aggressive and can both sting and bite. Dealing with them inside the house is even more difficult! We recommend having your house sprayed and putting up traps in early spring to prevent the nests from getting started. Doing so allows you to get the queens before they ever have a chance to start a nest.

Hi. I just wanted to thank you. We had a noise coming from the ceiling in one of our bedrooms in the area where we also saw what looked like water stains. We also had bees flying in and out by the dormer in that bedroom but hadn’t noticed it so much because it was so high up.I was googling trying to figure it out and your site popped up. I read it and realized this was exactly our problem. We called an exterminator that came out right away. He could feel a huge nest up there. Had it not been for what you wrote on your site we could’ve had all those bees come right through the ceiling. I would have called you but we live in PA. lol
Thank you very much for your comment. We are glad that our article was able to help you get your problem fixed. It wouldn’t have been much fun had they started coming through your ceiling. Thank you again for the comment.
