Yellowjackets are the most aggressive of wasps. Yellowjackets are more slender than bees and fold their wings lengthwise when at rest.

Despite their aggressive behavior, they are considered beneficial pests, as they prey on other insects. But unlike bees, they deliver multiple painful stings.

Yellowjackets are most aggressive when they feel their nest is threatened and their stings are fairly painful. Those allergic should seek immediate medical attention.
