In Tennessee, 11 species of yellowjackete wasps can be found (Table 1). These wasps are often considered beneficial as predators of crop pests; however, in late summer they can be pests due to their stinging behavior. This factsheet summarizes information about yellowjacket identification, biology, behavior and lists options for control when needed.
