Insecticides and traps are ways to kill yellow jackets. The insects in question can be controlled best in the early summer weeks by setting up mechanical, non-toxic traps and using aerosols or dusts after sunset and before sunrise, during which times yellow jackets are resting underground. Treatment is most effective during sub-50°F/10°C temperatures -- when the perceived pests cannot fly -- through professional services, with head-to-toe personal protective equipment.
