What is this insect?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The last few days a swarm of bee like insects have been hovering around the coop. It is black and yellow, less than an inch long, and very thin, unlike a bee. They have not tried to sting me. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks!

It could be a paper wasp.  Here is a site that might help you identify what it is.  http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7450.html
