Workers in wasp nests sometimes kill their queens, even though these egg-laying wasps are also their mothers. Now, researchers think they might know why such murders take place — so that workers can give birth to sons of their own, according to a new study. Wasps are often social insects that live together in nests. Wasp colonies are usually founded in the springtime by a single queen that first gives birth to female workers and later to male drones and female queens.
Top definition. Yellow Jacket unknown. An often small and rather persistent read: annoying wasp that flourishes in the summer months and is easily recognized by the yellow portion around its midsection the "jacket".
Learning the secrets of the birds and the bees, and the wasps can be a hazardous pursuit. Georgia Institute of Technology biology professor Michael Goodisman, along with two of his graduate students, are suiting-up, willing to take it on the ankle and wherever else the aggressive yellow jackets may sting. Homeowner Roger Bakeman had phoned Goodisman as Bakeman had done the year before.
In many colonies of social insects, the workers compete with each other and with the queen over the production of the colony's males. In some species of social bees and wasps with annual societies, this intra-colony conflict even results in matricide-the killing of the colony's irreplaceable queen by a daughter worker. In colonies with low effective paternity and high worker-worker relatedness, workers value worker-laid males more than queen-laid males, and thus may benefit from queen killing.
Sex and the City is all about love. Love of friendship, love of romance, love of NYC, and most importantly love of fashion. The characters on the HBO series wear clothing that is so unforgettable and iconic that we had to go and make a list of the best outfits worn on the show.
The eastern yellow jacket or eastern yellowjacket Vespula maculifrons is a wasp found in eastern North America. Vespidae consists of three subfamilies — StenogastrinaePolistinaeand Vespinae — which display common features such as tarsal claws. This refers to the spots on the head of species, which is another distinguishing characteristic.
Michael Goodisman could be called the Maury Povich of the yellow jacket world. In his laboratory, Goodisman determines the paternity of yellow jackets to study family dynamics within a colony. Even though only one family lives within a colony, each yellow jacket queen mates with several males, creating a complex family tree.
