Everyone in the Albany area has come across their fair share of yellow jackets. They are highly aggressive especially this time of year in the capital region. They can cause a bunch of problems because we all love to be outdoors as much as possible knowing that the cold weather is soon coming.
The reason that they are more aggressive is because there are a significantly increased number of yellow jackets this time of year, because their food supplies are in short demand. They are on the hunt looking for food sources which typically involve your backyard events. If you are cooking food, eating watermelon and have any drinks for people or children to enjoy, you most certainly will experience had a yellow jackets joining your party.
Unlike wasps, yellow jackets typically build their nest underground, hoping trees, or in attics to ensure they have maximum protection from the elements. If they feel like their nest is threatened, they will swarm an attack and capable of stinging multiple times. I experienced this first hand as a child running on my aunts lawn and stepping on a nest and getting stung like crazy.
