Artist's Description

Mr. Yellow Jacket made another nest on the eve of my little house mailbox. I rotated the photo 180 degrees for he was hanging upside down on the nest. I took some shots and then knocked down the nest for fear of my post mail getting stung. LOL

Size 5/8 to 1 inch
Color: Black and Yellow or Black and White
Thin waist

They usually nest in the ground, but will also in railroad ties, wall voids and other above ground locations. In the spring, most yellow jackets will feed on insects. Many homeowners see “bees” flying around their hedges.
These “bees” are usually Yellow Jackets and are there to eat insects on the foliage. Spraying the hedges with an appropriate insecticide will kill the food source of the yellow jackets, and they will soon leave the area.

In the fall the wasp colonies have come the largest size, and foraging workers may be serious nuisance as they search for food people eat or discarded food.

If a colony is disturbed, they can become very aggressive and sting. For most a sting is temporary, but painful, but for allergic individuals as a single sting may result in serious reaction, requiring medical treatment.
