With my new-found interest in wasps, I was looking to start a second paper wasp colony. I have two colonies of P. carolina in my shed. One just started with a single foundress and another a little more established (6 wasps on the nest that I can see). The larger one interests me because with my P. exclamans colony, I've noticed some varying markings between individuals. On the P. carolina colony, half the wasps are the typical solid reddish brown but the other half have two bright yellow vertical stripes down the head and face. Is this a normal variance in P. carolina or am I mistaken in my ID? Has anyone seen this big of difference in markings on their colonies?
