These people need to be especially careful. If you are stung and are allergic, seek medical attention immediately.
Anaphylaxis, or anaphylactic shock, is a life-threatening allergic reaction, usually caused by an insect sting. Symptoms include respiratory constriction, massive or irregular swelling, hives, irregular heart pace or rhythm, and more.
Epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, is a hormone that helps restore heart speed and rhythm, open airways, and improve blood flow during anaphylaxis. It is often included as an injection for those who are allergic to insect stings. Yellow jacket removal can go along way to help with this, too.
In general, yellow jackets eat other bugs, including crop-destroying insects that cause problems for gardeners and farmers, which makes them beneficial in the wild.
Some species of yellow jackets also eat flower nectar and pollen, just like bees, which means some yellow jackets help plants by pollination. Although, no pollinating insects are quite as efficient pollinators as native bees. If they become a nuisance, though, yellow jacket removal could be important for homeowners.
