Rock's FREE Bee Removal | Mid-Michigan Hornet and Yellow Jacket Removal Service

You Spot Them, We Got Them!

Hornet and Yellow Jacket venom is a valuable commodity to research laboratories. Rock's “Bee” Removal is a free service that harvests those potentially dangerous pests to help protect allergic individuals from serious harm or even death. This process is called immunotherapy.

NOTE: Use extreme caution around any nests. Hornets & Yellow jackets will protect their hive.

If you would like a nest removed, please Do Not Spray the nest with any pesticide of any kind. This is a hazard to yourself and the integrity of the venom used for research purposes.

We Want to Remove These Varieties of Hornets & Yellow Jackets

Bald-Faced Hornet

Dolichovespula maculata

  • Nest Type: Football Shaped Paper Nest
  • Nest Location: Exposed or Hanging

The Bald Faced Hornet's well-known features include hanging paper nests and the females' habit of defending them with repeated stings.

Yellow Hornet

Dolichovespula arenaria

  • Nest Type: Football Shaped Paper Nest
  • Nest Location: Exposed or Hanging

The Yellow Hornet has similar habits as the Bald-Faced Hornet. It is colored with more yellow striping and smaller in size than that of the Bald-Faced Hornet.

Yellow Jackets

Vespula

  • Nest Type: Paper Nest
  • Nest Location: Hidden In Buildings, Walls, etc

Yellow Jackets can be identified by their distinctive markings, small size, occurrence only in colonies, and a characteristic, rapid, side to side flight pattern prior to landing.

Eastern Yellow Jackets

Vespula maculifrons

  • Nest Type: Paper Nest
  • Nest Location: Hidden In Ground

The most recognizable features of Easter Yellow Jackets are the black and yellow lines on the head, thorax and abdomen. The body is curved and wider than the head. This type of yellow jacket nests in the ground, although unusual nest locations can occur above the ground in urban environments such as hollow walls, attics, and other artificial spaces.
