Northern Red-banded Yellowjacket

Vespula intermedia


This is one of the least studied North American Wasps. A nest has never been reported, but I have found a large group of them before ( and will go back to look for a nest in the summer.


Found inside my bathroom. Residential area


Treated as a synonym of Vespula rufa until 2012, when it was confirmed as its own species.
