Most often found nesting in the ground (“Ground Bees”), different species of this extremely aggressive insect will nest in shrubs and inside of your home's walls as well. 
Ground Bees

Ground Bees

A type of Yellow Jacket usually found in underground cavities, ground bees' soccer ball-to-basketball sized paper nests are usually suspended from overlaying plant roots, logs, or landscape timbers.
Paper Wasps

Although not very particular when establishing a nesting site, paper wasps are often found behind window shutters, under decks and in the eves of your home. The European paper wasp (pictured on right) is often confused with the yellow jacket. 
Bald-faced Hornets

Bald-Faced Hornets

These extremely aggressive and quick-tempered insects will sting repeatedly until they no longer feel threatened. They nest exclusively outdoors and often in exposed locations.
Carpenter Bees

Carpenter Bees 

Often called 'Wood Bees' or 'Boring Bees,' carpenter bees will chew tunnels through the wood on your home. They are often confused with bumble bees, but are FAR MORE destructive.
Honey Bees

Honey Bees

Extremely beneficial and necessary to our survival, honey bees are handled with the utmost care and are removed alive whenever possible.
Bumble Bees

Bumble Bees

Do not let their soft fuzzy appearance fool you; they can be quite aggressive if provoked. Typically found nesting in the ground, bumble bees will also nest in mounds of dry grass or hay.
Mud Wasps

Mud Wasps

These slender insects are usually black in color and may have pale to yellow markings or a metallic luster, and some Mud Wasp species will appear "jittery" as they walk.
Cicada Killers

Cicada Killers

At 1 inch to 1-5/8 inch in length, the cicada killer, a type of wasp, can be quite alarming to see as they resemble giant yellow jackets. They will often nest close to other cicada killers, usually in bare and / or sandy soil.
