Little known facts and unsubstantiated rumors about yellowjackets: 

They are ground-dwellers by nature, but the eaves of your house are too easy and they're lazy. 

They eat meat early in the season then resort to sugar later on.

If you cut one in half and it's been that way for quite a while, the back end can still sting you. 

When you smash one or give one a near-death experience, it sends out a pheromonal bat-signal to other yellowjackets telling them that they should attack you. 

Yellowjackets are fond of showtunes. 

I learned the term "pestiferous" when researching how to dispatch a colony of yellowjackets that had moved into my attic. I enjoy saying "pestiferous" now.

The upper intestine of an average human adult contains over 7 pounds of undigestible matter. This includes animal teeth and beaks, hair, pieces of claws and talons, insect casings and wings, metal, enamel, pieces of glass and other material which the stomach acids can not break down and therefore cannot be metabolized.

I hear you!   I have a woman on my floor that hates my cat.  she is a busy body and nasty to me even before she knew i had a cat.  I live next to the elevator and she gets paranoid that I listen to her talking to people there.  i don't.  nothing bores me more.  she accused me of watching her.   i truly never did or do.  the people in the building seem to like her.   she talks to everyone.  she knocked on my door at 12:30 at night accusing my cat of cruising the hall.   my cat never goes out in the hall unless I am with her.  we have gone for walks side by side after midnight when nobody is around, and if we hear someone we run back in. we do this maybe once a month.  she said my cat peed on the carpet.  my cat has never peed anywhere but in the bathroom.   then she got on the board!  and then it was posted that no animals should be without a leash in the halls.   then she knocked again and asked me if I saw that.  i don't like her.   one time in the laundry room she put one piece of clothing in each of the dryers after I did a wash and i couldn't dry my clothes for hours.  she is crazy!
