Yellow Jackets in recliner

Brevard County Yellow Jacket Nest
Sit down in this Laz-Boy recliner and you'd have a heck of a buzzing surprise!

A colony of Southern YellowJackets, Vespula squamosa, decided to make their nest inside this recliner. Amazingly, this is very common, as the interior of most upholstered furniture has very large voids, providing perfect refuge in which to raise young, and to defend. If you look closely, you can see several openings that these wasps have chewed open, and surrounded with a paper like substance that they manufacture from tree barks.
