What is a Yellow Jacket?
With Florida’s warm weather year round and a multitude of thick tropical vegetation in the central and West Florida area, it is no surprise the two most common species of yellow jacket have taken a liking to the climate. The eastern yellow jacket and the southern yellow jacket are the two most common yellow jackets in the United States, with their territories ranging from the mideastern coast, to Mexico and Guatemala, and centralizing here in Florida. Central and west Florida in particular, such as the Lakeland and greater Orlando areas offer a surplus of vegetation, which the yellow jacket utilizes for the building of its nest. The southern yellow jacket and eastern yellow jacket are easily identified by their jagged black and yellow striped pattern. Both species of yellow jacket look more similar to wasps and hornets than bees. Yellow jackets can be further identified by their wide set eyes, long body length wings, wave patterned black stripes.
The yellow jacket is a social creature, much like bees. Yellow jackets thrive in colonies, living with up to up to 2,000 more yellow jackets in a single hive, with a single yellow jacket queen. Yellow jackets in particular seek out warm areas to nest, making our beautiful Lakeland neighborhoods an ideal nesting ground. Yellow jackets prefer to burrow underground to form their nests, but it is not unheard of that yellow jackets sometimes create their nests in the palm trees native to central and west Florida. The yellow jacket nest itself is made from wood and yellow jacket saliva. The yellow jacket worked create cells from this woody mixture and then surround the cells with a thin layer to hold it all together, almost like yellow jacket paper mache. Because of Lakeland’s thick tropical vegetation, yellow jackets have plenty of material to work with to build multiple large nests. Furthermore, yellow jackets hate the cold, and actually die off during the winter months, but because the warm weather that you enjoy here in Lakeland is year round, yellow jackets thrive in the climate.
Unlike the honeybee, the eastern yellow jacket and the southern yellow jacket do not produce honey. Yellow jackets contribute to the ecosystem instead by preying upon many insects that commonly destroy crops and vegetation. Because of this, yellow jackets are a vital part of the ecosystem. BeeMan Stan is an expert in removing yellow jackets safely, protecting you and your property.
