A nest of yellow jackets have moved into a corner of our porch. This room is closed in and seperately heated from the rest of the house. They are coming in from a small space between the softit and are between the roof and a drop ceiling. We have turned off all heat sources and have seen little or no activity in the last week as the temp in Pa have dropped into the 20's and 30's.

yellow-jackets are actually a small wasp that live in colonies for a year only. A queen hatches, fattens up then hibernates until the following spring. The old nest will be empty by mid winter and all the other yellow-jackets will have died, so wait till then to be sure that you don't get stung.
