What Yellow jackets eat?

Like many other flying insects, adult Yellow jackets feed on sugary substances such as flower nectar, fruit, and the occasional soda when they find an open can. What makes Yellow jackets unique is that they consume protein in their larval stage. Workers bring insects and other types of meat back to the nest as food for the larvae. Most homeowners consider Yellow jackets a pest, but their diet actually makes them an important part of garden pest control.
