In parts of the United States, particularly in the eastern states, yellow jackets, wasps, hornets and bees are all called bees by the general public. Of course the general public is principally focused on one attribute these insects have in common – their stingers. Knowledge of the behavior of these pests is essential to their management. Recognition of whether they solitary or social, and their particular nesting habits, is essential for safety and control.
