What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Need Id please
Hi Mr. Bugman,
Are these a type of Hornet or wasp please? Out to lunch today (always with camera!) and these beautiful beasts were very busy and didn’t bother us. Same weather conditions as yesterday in Halls Head W.A. I have searched your site but can’t seem to identify them. Please advise and thankyou for the info on the ‘bicolour’ Cheers
Karen

Hi Karen,
This is a Paper Wasp in the genus Polistes. At first we thought it might be a Yellow Jacket, but Eric Eaton corrected us: “That Australian yellowjacket is not in the genus Vespa. Looks suspiciously like Polistes dominula. Eric”
