But they can get pretty unpredictable here in September so it's best to stay calm when they're around. My sister has to walk around with an adrenalin shot in her purse in case she gets stung, she's really allergic to them.
Around here in Mass. anyways Yellow Jackets (imaged below) seem to be the most territorial and likely to sting of all the flying stinging insects we have and despite their beautiful color patterns no one really likes them very much...

When I was around 12 years old we were hitting golf balls with aluminum baseball bats (one of my favorite pastimes and those golf balls went way further than any baseball could) and wouldnt you know one of the golf balls that I hit ended up going right into a hole in the side of an old tree about 300 feet away...

So I ran up to the tree and put my hand right into that tree hole and grabbed the golf ball and right away i felt something weird on my hand but no pain and so i pulled out the golf ball with about 15 yellow jackets crawling all over my hand and as I reeled in shock and ran and tried shaking them off I was stung about 7 times on my hand and it hurt more that a lot...

I'm not allergic to them and so nothing severe happened to me except for a few hours of intense pain...

Yes I think that's exactly the key to not getting stung is - Not to panic. If you show fear or aggression they will most likely sting. But who the hell has the presence to keep their cool when that happens. uhoh.gif

When I got stung at work last week, it was on my arm and my hi-vis vest brushed against it. Wham. Didn't even know it was there.

A girl I knew years ago when she was around 15 was walking through the woods barefoot (those were the later hippie days during the later 70s and most everyone walked around barefoot quite often) and she stepped right into a bee? or wasp? or yellow jacket? nest that they had built into the leaves and sticks on the ground and she pulled out her foot and screamed in agony with the entire nest wrapped around her foot that was imbedded within it and she ran and shook and kicked it off and ended up being stung about 50 times all over her foot and leg and was rushed to the hospital but she managed to survive that much intense amount of venom being injected into her body that quickly because she was healthy and not allergic to it...

This aint no still image from a horror movie,although it might as well be,this is real and like o mi gawd what the f##k?!?!?!

A massive yellow jacket nest engulfs the inside of a 1955 chevrolet,gigantic yellow jacket nests have been found in old barns, unoccupied houses, cars and underground cavities across the southern two thirds of Alabama and elsewhere...

"Hey wanna go get those tools outta the old car out back in the barn for me"

Oh god no! damned.gif

We have a tiny yellowjacket nest in our storage room, but that's almost cute in comparison. It's not the one in the pic, but comparable in size and environment.

Those are the type I have where I live. Strange thing is I have a wasps nest right above my door in my carport that I use to enter and exit out of everyday.We must have a silent understanding because they don't buzz me at all. I see two on guard that look at me and I look back and nod. They nod back.

Then theres the problem with what they consider f###ing with them and what we consider f###ing with them are probably many different things...

If the nest is 6ft x 8ft big like the one in the video above above,just walking anywhere near it and all the worse accidentally and they'll probably consider that an act of aggression and attack to kill...
