I'm moderately allergic to bees and extremely allergic to yellow jackets, so you best believe I'd be leaving the area. I'm good at pointing them out to Bub on the eaves of the house and telling him to kill it. They aren't really animals,are they?
The nest sounds very much like a yellow jacket nest, although they usually build their homes either under ground a ground (like a hold in the yard) or in a bush. I ran over a nest of them mowing the grass once, grabbed my kid and ran inside and didn't think any more about the lawn mower still running. My neighbor was very nice - he turned off the mower, moved it, and burned the nest for me.
I haven't looked at the picture closely because it is 6:20 a.m. now and I'd like to get some sleep with what is left of the night. Our a/c was struck by lightening around 2:30 and it is rather warm. I'd rather NOT go through another of those storms with no air conditioning!!
Keep us up-dated and I'll see what I can find out.
