Yellow Jacket nest and winter predictions

Few years back, my husband shot what he though was a hornets nest from a tree, @ 15 feet high, but found out it was Yellow Jackets, who usually build under ground.
I've heard that the deeper in the ground they are, the harder the winter. That winter they were up in a tree, which, according to that theory, should have meant very mild, yet we had snow measured in feet, instead of inches.. Anyone know of any sayings or old folks tales about this?
Just wondering

Yellow Jacket nest and winter predictions

That was the first and only time I ever saw Yellow Jackets that were not nesting in the ground..

Yellow Jackets

Yes, I've heard of old timers sayings in regards to yellow jackets. The higher the yellow jacket nest is in the tree, the harder the winter can or will be in regards to snowfall. If the yellow jacket nest is in the ground, it typically means its going to be a cold/not so bad winter. If it's in a tree, we can expect snow and lots of it. Also, one year I found a black wooley worm, coal black, and this was one of the worst winters ever experienced. Lots and lots and lots of snow. Hope this helps.

SNOW

The farmer I get my eggs from has a hornets nest that is only 4" off the ground. Isn't that supposed to mean not much snow according to farmers?

Soft Winter?

Hi, Duane: There are actually old folk sayings on both sides of this phenomenon, but most are along the lines of “Hornet’s nests high, hard winter nigh.” So low nests might indeed mean less snow. Another tradition has it that the height of the nests equals the amount of snow to be expected. Thanks for asking!

I have a yellow jackets nest

I have a yellow jackets nest in the roof of my house! It has been there since summer. They got in through a small hole in the siding and built their nest, attached it to the bottom side of the roof tin. I have an "A" roof built on. Odd thing is, I was able to walk by their nest all summer, multiple times per day, without getting attacked. They are still there but not as active. Do the bee's die out during winter months? If so, will other bee's start using the nest next year if I don't tear it down? I'd hate to have to tear off half my siding/roof just to remove the nest but I will if I have to.

We Are Supposed to Have Bad Winter This Year.

We Are Supposed to Have Bad Winter just like last year in Western Pennsylvania. When Do Snowstorms Begin. I Don't Want A Mild Winter I Want A Bad Winter.

Winter 2018-2019

I agree with Nick I what a super bad winter with lots of snow and cold
I praying that it will be a super bad winter.

Bonnie, no, you've doomed us all!

A super bad winter is sure to kill some less fortunate people & critters. Please don't pray for this Bonnie, please.

Fall Should Be Coming. Winter Is Supposed To Be A Bad Winter.

Why Doesn't Get Really Cold Till The End Of December, Till The End Of January, And February. Why Is It Coming Till The End Of The Month. Some People Like Snow Some People Don't. We Get Snow Every Year In Pennsylvania. Winter Is Not A Warm Season. Winter Is A Coldest Season. That Is A Mistake. It's Suppose To Get Really Through Mid December And Mid January And Mid February And The Snowiest Periods Will Be In Mid-December And Mid-January, Mid-February. Are We Gonna Have Very Much Snow This Year. I Wanna Have Alot School Delays And School Cancellations This Winter. So I Can Sleep In And Not Worry About Getting Up So Early. We Might Have A Horrible Winter This Year. I Don't Know Maybe. Will Find Out This Year.
