    We use Family Pest Solutions on a regularly scheduled program and it has greatly reduced the number of bugs in and around our house. We had a lot of bees and nests in the past, and the interior had a very big fly problem especially in the fall and winter it is all gone now.

    I highly recommend Jack and Family Pest Solutions. I contracted Family Pest Solutions for a pest inspection. Jack was very knowledgeable and gave me a detailed plan of action using the most up-to-date methods to treat my issue. Overall, I would recommend Family Pest Solutions to friends and family without hesitation.

    I had a rather large and active nest of yellow jackets that is now no longer. Matt was professional and well-versed in what needed to be done. Jack and his team of pros are always focused on getting it right, well worth the price.

    We've used Family Pest Solution for two years and couldn't be happier with them. Gary usually services our house and he's professional, kind, and always explains in detail what's going on. Glad to be on ongoing service with them to keep our home pest free!

    We had a large active wasp nest and they came the same day and took care of the entire problem. Huge thank you!

    From helpful phone calls to quick and friendly service, this business is awesome! I was originally very worried about the process, having pests in the house is disgusting! They answered all my questions and reassured me. Everything went according to plan - arrived on time, reviewed what they would do and what to expect. Great people, I’d refer them to all!

    We had a great experience and a good laugh when they found where the squirrels were nesting and storing hundreds, yes hundreds of nuts in an old canning cellar that we did not use. Reasonable price, quick to set up service, friendly, and explained everything. This is the second service we have used and hands down would recommend them!

Yellowjackets are a type of wasp that nests to stay safe from the colder seasons. These nests are common around residential and commercial buildings, and can pose a great risk to yourself, employees, family, and pets, especially if somebody is allergic to their sting. 


If you have spotted yellowjackets around your property, Family Pest Solutions can help get rid of them. Please call us or set up a free inspection to begin eradicating them from your home.

Paper Wasps

Paper wasps look similar to yellow jackets, with some different characteristics. You can see a picture of them below:

Paper Wasp

As we know, yellowjackets and hornets are extremely aggressive bugs, however paper wasps usually only sting or attack whenever they are directly threatened, or their nest is directly threatened. Make sure to steer clear of paper wasps so that you do not threaten them.

If you find paper wasps around your home, please immediately call Family Pest Solutions so that you can get a professional inspection and feedback on the best way to proceed with extermination.

Carpenter Bees

There are many types of carpenter bees, but they can easily be recognized by their dark color and shiny body. It is easy to confuse them with bumblebees – a good way to tell the difference is to take a look at the bee’s abdomen. If it has fur, it is a bumblebee, and if it is shiny it’s more than likely a carpenter bee. Don’t get too close though! Try to make this analysis from a safe distance.

Carpenter Bee

If you are unsure whether you have regular bumblebees or in fact have a carpenter bee infestation, call Family Pest Solutions to schedule a free inspection. We can identify the pest and offer the right solutions to get rid of carpenter bees.
