What is this aggressive bee? It was nesting in a cinder block wall, very aggressive and when I was stung it left it's stinger and lower abdomen remaining in my scalp. I don't remember seeing this type here before . Mulino, OR.
Ramsey County Oregon
This is not a bee. It is a wasp (most probably a yellow jacket). Wasps are in general more defensive/aggressive. They are common in most of Oregon.
