Looking to get rid of Hornets and Yellow Jackets?

Call Bee Busters at 931-691-5371 for Absolutely FREE Removal of live Yellow Jacket and Hornet Nests

Besides raising Berkshire hogs for sale on the online farmer's market, Bee Busters also collects live yellow jacket and hornet nests for FREE.   In addition to yellow jackets and hornets, they also collect striped wasps that look very similar to yellow jackets.   The insects that they collect go to a laboratory where they are used to make allergy medicine for people who are allergic to the stings.  Numerous people are killed by these insects every year.  Since these insects are used to make medicine, they can only collect nests that have not been sprayed, gassed, burned, etc.
