Ground Bees / Yellow Jackets / Vespula maculifrons, Vespula vulgaris
Do you have a memorable story that begins "I remember one Summer when my father/uncle/big brother was cutting the grass when all of the sudden..."? These were ground bees (actually a type of yellow jacket) that chased your father around the yard. They build hives two inches to two feet underground often using abandoned mole or mouse burrows. They are much smaller than other yellow jackets but are fairly aggressive and can become very easily agitated – especially with a giant lawnmower rumbling overhead. (Note: Pouring gasoline into their hole is not at all safe. Give me a ring — I'll take care of them for you.)
