Only a few of the very large number of
wasp species in California live a social
life. These species are referred to as social

most or all of the year and provide a great
benefit by killing large numbers of plant-
feeding insects and nuisance flies; others
are exclusively scavengers. Wasps become
a problem only when they threaten to sting
humans. In California, yellowjackets are
the primary pests among...
