What is a Yellow jacket?
Yellow jackets are sometimes mistakenly called "bees", but Yellow jackets are actually wasps. They may be confused with other wasps, such as hornets and paper wasps. Yellow jackets typically have a yellow and black head/face and patterned abdomen.
Yellow jackets are social insects that live in nests or colonies with up to 4,000 workers. They are most active in the late summer and early autumn when a colony is at its peak. Yellow jackets feed on sweets and proteins, and therefore commonly invade outdoor events.
Yellow jacket stings can pose significant health threats to humans since they are territorial and can sting if threatened. They are known to repeatedly sting and can also cause allergic reactions. It is believed that Yellow jackets and other stinging insects send over 500,000 people to the emergency room each year.

Where do Yellow jackets live?
Yellow jackets can be found anywhere humans are found. They build paper carton nests out of chewed up cellulose, which are usually found in the ground or in cavernous areas such as eaves and attics.
