Our yellow jackets!!!!!!! In this project we are going to test how a yellow jacket responds to both vinegar and water.
-Hypothesis- We think that the vinegar will kill the yellow jackets and that the vinegar probably will enter its body by way of its mouth.

-Procedures-

Part 1 items- Nets, paint brushes, vinegar, water, cages, Yellow Jackets, and gloves

Experimenters: Emily and Chelsea

-Part 2- We are going to catch the yellow Jackets in a dish, then we are going to stick them in the freezer and wait for them to get paralyzed. Once they are paralyzed we are going to start our project on our friends the yellow jackets.

-Variables- The things that could affect us would be if they would wake up and fly away or maybe we would touch the stinger!!!!! "OUCH
