Vespula germanica (European wasp, German wasp, or German yellowjacket) is a species of wasp found in much of the Northern Hemisphere, native to Europe, Northern Africa, and temperate Asia. It has been introduced and is well-established in many other places, including North America, South America (Argentina and Chile), Australia, and New wasps are part of the family Vespidae and.

Wasp is a general term, and includes yellowjackets as well as other stinging and non-stinging wasps are parasites (or parasitoids) of other insects and do not sting. Vespula acadica, also known as the Forest Yellowjacket, is a North American species of eusocial wasp which is part of the "rufa" group within the genus Vespula. It is a black and yellow wasp that is found in arboreal areas and builds its nests most often in decaying vegetation like logs, but has occasionally been found to build aerial nests.

Ann Entomol Soc Am./aesa/ Article Google Scholar. Cladistic analysis of 25 species of Dolichovespula and Vespula (yellowjackets) is used to investigate the evolution of social parasitism in these genera.
Three species of yellowjackets are social parasites, or inquilines; that is, lacking a worker caste, and dependent on usurping the colony of a host species to obtain a worker force. Emery's Rule states that social parasites are more closely.
Mutual policing is an important mechanism for maintaining social harmony in group-living organisms. In some ants, bees, and wasps, workers police male eggs laid by other workers in order to maintain the reproductive primacy of the queen.
Kin selection theory predicts that multiple mating by the queen is one factor that can selectively favor worker policing. This is because when the queen is.

Richard Vernier, 10 September, - am login or register to post comments. Nine species of social wasps were captured in traps baited with acetic acid, isobutanol, heptyl butyrate and combinations of acetic acid and either isobutanol or heptyl butyrate. Three yellowjacket species in the Vespula rufa species group were captured in traps (Vespula acadica (Sladen), Vespula consobrina (Saussure), Vespula vidua (Saussure)).
Among the wasps, only a relatively few species are successful tramps–most notably, the German yellowjacket (Vespula germanica), the common wasp (Vespula vulgaris), the western yellowjacket (Vespula pensylvanica), and the European paper wasp Polistes dominulus.
Handbook of Urban Insects and Arachnids This account provides the first comprehensive coverage of the insect and other arthropod pests in the urban environment worldwide Presented is a brief description, biology, and detailed information on the development, habits, and distribution of urban and public health pests There are illustrations to accompany some of the major pest species The.The yellow jacket also has well-developed mouthparts that are specially designed to capture and chew prey (such as many kinds of caterpillars).
Along with strong jaws the yellow jacket has a highly developed tongue for sucking nectar and fruit juices from the plants. (Grissell, May ; Lyon, ; Ross and Matthews, ) Other Physical Features.Yellowjacket Scientific Name: Vespula spp. and Dolichovespula spp.
