Yellow Jackets Are Thriving

Yellow Jacket

The Yellow Jacket is responsible for more stings than any other Indiana wasp.

Bees are having a difficult time. In contrast, Yellow Jackets are thriving in some areas. A pest control operator in central Florida recently reported a massive yellow jacket nest fully 6 feet high and 8 feet wide. The property owner considered it to be a hazard and wanted it removed.

KFOR has the video.
