Yellow jacket is the common name for a North American wasp and of course they are generally yellow and black but some are black and white, because of their colors they are mistakenly called bees.
Yellow jackets vs. Bees:
Yellow jackets, in contrast to carpenter bees, are not covered with tan-brown dense hair on their bodies and lack the flattened hairy hind legs used to carry pollen. These insects have a lance-like stinger without barbs and can sting repeatedly whereas carpenter bees have a barbed stinger and sting only once. Some have yellow on the face. Mouthparts are well-developed for capturing and chewing insects with a tongue for sucking nectar, fruit and other juices. Nests are built in trees, shrubs or in protected places such as inside human-made structures (attics, hollow walls or flooring, in sheds, under porches and eaves of houses), or in soil cavities, mouse burrows, etc. Nests are made from wood fiber chewed into a paper-like pulp.
Life Cycle and Habits of the yellow jacket
Yellow jackets are social wasps living in colonies containing workers, queens and males. Colonies are annual with only inseminated queens over wintering. Fertilized queens occur in protected places as hollow logs, in stumps, under bark, in leaf litter, in soil cavities and human-made structures. Queens emerge during the warm days of late April or early May, select a nest site and build a small paper nest in which eggs are laid. After eggs hatch from the 30 to 50 brood cells, the queen feeds the young larvae for about 18 to 20 days. Larvae pupate, emerging later as small, infertile females called workers. By mid-June, the first adult workers emerge and assume the tasks of nest expansion, foraging for food, care of the queen and larvae, and colony defense.
Parent colony workers dwindle, usually leaving the nest and die, as does the queen. Abandoned nests rapidly decompose and disintegrate during the winter. Nests inside structures will persist as long as they are dry. Nests are not used again. ALCO Animal & Pest Control provides yellow jacket and other bee removal and control for residents in NJ.
