Y is for Yellow Jacket – Word up!

Yellow Jacket
\ˈjɛləʊ ˈdʒakɪt\
Yellow jacket or yellowjacket is the common name in North America for predatory wasps of the genera Vespula and Dolichovespula. Members of these genera are known simply as “wasps” in other English-speaking countries.
They get a bit of a bad press but are primarily beneficial in the garden because not only are they pollinators but they also help to control the insect population by eating caterpillars and other soft bodied pests.
