Yellowjackets and their relatives have well-earned reputations for painful stings. Yet when these insects occur at safe distances from human activity, none automatically requires elimination from Idaho yards and gardens. All instead should be considered beneficial pollinators, predators, or scavengers. This 16-page publication with 20 color illustrations will help you understand differences in the biology and sting threat posed by the most prevalent types of yellowjackets, hornets, and wasps encountered around Idaho homes. Information here will help you decide first if control action is needed. Then it will help you determine your best options. Along the way, you'll learn a lot about these fascinating wild creatures so close to home, including how to save one of their beautifully constructed nests. Author: Edward J. Bechinski
