Interaction between honey bees and yellowjackets

I have a small field behind my house that is mostly weeds with a bunch of fruit trees and a veggie garden. Three of my neighbors have honeybees and I have an underground nest of yellowjackets.

So far the jackets seem fairly non-aggressive, they patrol at ground level and I have much fewer insect pests in my garden than any other year, no slugs or earwigs in the lettuce at all.

I am a bit worried about the bees, I do not want my neighbors to lose out and I am worrying about some fruit trees not getting pollinated.

Do any of you have first hand knowledge of interaction of bees and yellowjackets? A google search gives some vague results but I want to try reddit and see what the hive-mind says
