Williston, Fla.: Yellow Jacket removal; Reproductive Queen and worker Photo

Here's a closeup of a Southern Yellow Jacket queen and one of her daughter workers. The scientific name for the southern yellow jacket is Vespula squamosa, and it is the dominant species here in peninsular Florida. One of the cool behaviours of  V. squamosa is its ability to foster many queens in the same nest, which of course leads to extremely large nest sizes with populations exceeding One Million (!) individuals.
These girls came from a colony located in a ground nest on a cattle farm in Williston, Fla. Call us for expert yellow jacket removal
