ATLANTA, GA, October 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta wildlife removal professionals, Urban Wildlife Control, want to remind residents that yellow jackets, those most feared of wasps, do not simply go away when summer shifts into autumn. Although many other insects like mosquitoes and even various species of bees like honeybees burrow for the better part of the colder months of the year, yellow jackets are fairly resilient to climate shifts. In fact, they remain active up until late fall, at which point in time the chosen queens of the colonies die off. What you may not know is that right now is the height of Yellow Jacket colony growth.
Yellow Jackets are Active in autumn
The Atlanta animal removal company says the hives of these wasps expand rapidly from mid to late summer, as it is not uncommon for their numbers to triple in the span of a couple of months. The role of the queen is to lay eggs and the role of the foraging wasps shifts to gathering meat-based foods to those high in sugar, which inevitably bring the yellow jackets into closer contact with humans. If you are planning a fall picnic or spend time outdoors, be on the lookout for these flying pests.
Societal demands placed on the foragers to gather food for the newly laid eggs causes them to venture into areas they may not have during the summertime. According to Richard Wallas, President of Urban Wildlife, "Like all wasps, Yellow Jackets are a formidable foe for the fact that they can sting repeatedly without dying. The detached barb allows for multiple attacks. To avoid getting stung, be cautious of your surroundings. They make their nests underground, so watch your step near gardens and areas with brush."
