Queen Wasp Behavior
Will Yellow Jackets hang in a large group from a tree.
They looked like a nest of bee's one minute they were there and the next
they were gone. Why would they do this?
I have never heard of yellow jackets behaving this way. Honey bees swarm in
that fashion, but yellow jacket queens survive as solitary individuals, the
colony expands over the summer, and all but the queen die in the winter. I
don't believe they swarm.
