Social wasps are named so because they live in colonies. This group includes yellow jackets, hornets, and umbrella or paper wasps. Wasps are seen flying to and from a hole in a wall or a paper nest hanging from an eave.
Keep food and garbage covered to discourage wasps from becoming pests. Social wasps can easily withdraw their stingers and sting again. If you are stung, apply a cold compress to the area.
