Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets live in meadows and usually nest in the ground or at ground level.  The adults love nectar and feed pre-chewed insects to their larva. 

They enjoy invading picnics and will actually carry off small pieces of food. 

They are very aggressive and will sting repeatedly at the slightest disturbance.  Avoid them at all cost.
