Identifying Yellow Jacket Problems
There are many species of yellow jackets. They are generally black and yellow in color and 1.4 inches long. Queens are typically 3/8 inch long. Identification of individual species can be done by reviewing the markings on their abdomens. Their nests may become very large with hundreds to even thousands of individuals. Over wintering, queens start the nest in the spring and it enlarges throughout the summer. Queens will spend winter outside under debris, logs and occasionally inside attics. With most yellow jacket problems, the nest dies out in the winter; in some regions, the individuals in the nest may over winter.
German yellow jackets typically nest in attics. This is a stinging insect and people can be allergic. Depending on the species, these wasps may nest in shrubbery or trees, on buildings, in attics and in wall voids of structures. Generally, they are a very aggressive stinging insect; individuals can sting several times.
