NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – You see so many yellow jackets this time of year because all the larvae has hatched.

Each one can sting several times, so if you’re allergic you might end up at the hospital.

Dr. Justin Morgan, an Air Force educated allergist, said “the venom contains chemicals that are designed to inflict pain, and it does really well.”

The aggressive insect causes their victims to swell and itch for at least a day or two.

Anchor Samantha Fisher will have more on News 2 at 10.
