603 Pest was very responsive when I called in August 2020 about yellow jackets going after the painter up on his ladder. They diverted Chris and he was there in about 20 minutes. He addressed the issue which turned out to be a rather large size nest that had just established itself within a few days. He treated the nest which was behind an exterior light fixture. He removed the fixture carefully and sprayed and ensured it was safe for the painter to continue. Highly recommend!

We are having issues with mice and potentially some other wildlife though we aren't sure. When we called 603 Pest, we spoke to a wonderful woman (I can't remember her name, I'm so sorry but she was incredibly helpful). We got an appointment the same week which is not typical in my experience. The exterminatory they sent, Dan, was wearing a mask when he arrived at the door which was awesome. I was happy that he took the precaution without me having to ask. Dan also ensured he stayed 6ft away when at all possible and wore coverings for his boots. He was very informative about what the issues were and what he was doing/did to address them. He was honest about what he could and couldn't do. We rent an old farmhouse so there are a lot of issues that we have no control over and Dan made sure he did what he could but also let us know that they didn't fix the problem but would help. Dan also ensured we were aware of what the next steps, coming out to check in about 2 weeks and let us know what would be done to address any further issues. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to ensure we knew and understood what was being done. He also made sure we knew that we could call between scheduled visits if there were issues. Dan was very professional and even made sure to give us info about potential harm to our small dog from traps set in the upstairs/attic so we would be sure to keep her out of that area. Based on the interaction with lady who answered the phone and scheduled our appointment and then Dan, I would highly recommend 603 Pest to others. 603 Pest is very lucky to have both employees as a part of their team!

We had a bad issue with yellow jacket bees coming in through our ceiling in our master bedroom which of course happened on a Sunday. Jeff from 603 Pest returned my call within 15 minutes of my leaving a message on Sunday, and he scheduled an appointment to get us in early Monday morning.603 Pest did a great job today! Dan was very friendly. He explained the very detailed process to get rid of the yellow jacket bees, and treated both areas of our house with active bee activity. Bees should be all gone soon!Thank you!They were also Recommended to us by “critter control of New Hampshire.”

Dan was awesome. He took care of a yellow jacket nest located between our foundation and the sill of our home and sprayed our entire foundation to prevent further invasions. He was timely - arrived at the scheduled appointment time, polite - introduced himself and was respectful of our yard, and personable - he explained about the eradication process and put our minds at ease when he was done. We would definitely recommend 603 Pest based on this experience and we would definitely request Dan again (if that were possible). Thank you!

I'm so glad we chose 603Pest. Not only were we able to get an appointment quickly, but the tech was very knowledgeable. After he pointed out and treated the huge carpenter ant nest (gross) , he explained what to look for and how we can avoid any further problems. They were also very affordable compared to others we called that day. I would definitely use them again!

Careful of the Stinger! Understanding the Difference Between Bees and Wasps

Bees and wasps can become a stinging danger when they nest too close to or in homes, commercial buildings or public spaces. A single sting can be life-threatening to individuals allergic to the venom. Likewise, multiple stings can be especially dangerous to young children, the elderly, or people with heart or breathing problems. To remove bees or wasps, the nest or hive must be moved or destroyed, which can be a dangerous endeavor and should only be handled by professionals.

But First, Know the Difference

Do not confuse yellow jackets, hornets and wasps with beneficial insects like honeybees and bumblebees, which are important pollinators and contribute to a healthy eco-system. Most bees are naturally nonaggressive and none of the males can sting while the females may only sting if the nest is threatened.

Yellow Jackets

This yellow and black wasp is about ½” long and can often be mistaken for a honeybee, but honeybees are covered with brownish hairs while yellow jackets are not. Many picnics have been ruined by these stinging insects, which are a common sight throughout New England and the frequent subject of bee removal requests. Yellowjackets typically nest in the ground but also nest in voids of man-made structures. Yellowjackets, especially the females, are extremely aggressive and will attack if their nest is being threatened. Yellowjacket stingers stay attached to their abdomens, making it possible for them to sting repeatedly, inflicting pain and injecting potent venom and many people have serious allergic reactions to their sting.

Paper Wasps

Paper wasps are similar to yellow jackets in color but have a slimmer, more elongated body shape. Their legs are long and hang down even during flight. Compared with yellow jackets, paper wasps are fairly unaggressive but will sting to defend their nests. You will find paper wasp nests in just about any protected location, such as inside mailboxes, cable TV and other utility boxes, under the covers of outdoor grills, in birdhouses or feeders and in light fixtures. Their nests are often the size of golf balls and consist of 20 or fewer cells and may hang horizontally or vertically.

Bald-Faced Hornets

Sometimes called white-faced hornets, bald-faced hornets are basically robust yellow jackets in black and white. They have heavy bodies and pale, yellow-white marks on the head and at the end of the abdomen. Hornets are actually beneficial, as they capture other insects to feed to their larvae. However, they are much more aggressive in defending their nest than the yellow jacket. The hive is a gray paper-like mass that gradually expands throughout the summer until it is about the size and shape of a football with an opening at the bottom. They are built above ground and can usually be found attached to the branches of a tree or shrub. Active nests may contain anywhere from 100-700 hornets!
