Yellow jacket wasps
Yellowjackets, part of the wasp family are smallish insects, and very aggressive. They are actually “beneficial” insects, preying on small insects which they will feed to their young. Yellowjackets nest in the ground, wall voids, and will even construct nests in the open. Treatment should be done at night, when they are less active and most of the colony is inside the nest. As with all wasps, the nest dies at the end of the year after producing queens for next year’s nests. These queens will overwinter in protected areas, waiting for spring.
