Where Do Yellow Jackets Build Their Nest? 

Yellow jackets build their nests where they won’t be easily disturbed by predators or wind. Common places include inside abandoned nests or dens, in piles of wood, under eaves, or hidden within sheds and attics. The most common place for yellow jackets to nest is underground, such as in an old gopher hole.

You can identify a yellow jacket nest by its papery, cone-like shape. If you notice a surplus of yellow jackets moving to and from an area, you’ve likely located a nest, or a food source that you can use to direct a pest control professional to the yellow jackets.
