Distribution

Vespula sulphurea is abundant in mid elevation and wildland areas in western North America.

Biology

This is the yellowest of the North American species, with a two yellow-striped scutum much like that seen in Vespula squamosa, but sulphurea occurs west of the 100th meridian. They build small, subterranean nests, generally feed on live prey; in unusual circumstances they might scavenge food.
