What kind of habitats does a yellow jacket prefer?

Yellow jackets have the interesting ability to nest underground and above ground. When building their nests above ground they love to be anywhere people are. They’ve been known to nest in tree branches or bushes as well as on the sides of buildings on under the eaves of houses. Their diet is comprised primarily of foods that are high in sugar or carbohydrates which may draw them to a garbage can, recycling bin, or your outdoor dining table.

What damage does a yellow jacket cause?

A yellow jacket nest will not damage your home, but once they’ve put down roots it can be very difficult to evict them from your property. The real risk with yellow jackets is being stung. For children, the elderly, or people who are allergic, a sting from a yellow jacket can be very dangerous. The sting itself is very painful, but in some cases it can cause additional symptoms like swelling, tightness in the throat or chest, nausea, dizziness, and hives.
