The yellowjacket (or yellow jacket) is a wasp from the genera Vespula and Dolichovespula. In some English-speaking countries, they are called wasps. Most are black and yellow. Some are black and white.
Yellowjackets are sometimes confused with bees because they have rather similar colouring. Yellowjackets have a stinger with a small barb. They may sting repeatedly.
