Wasps

What are wasps?

Wasps are a type of predatory stinging insect. These environmentally beneficial pests help reduce the number of dangerous insects that harm people and damage crops. However, when wasps decide to nest in our yards or homes, their helpfulness quickly becomes obsolete as their presence becomes a threat for us, our children, and our pets.

Wasps are typically divided into two groups and described as either solitary or social:

Social Wasps — In our area, examples of social wasps include yellow jackets, bald-faced hornets, and paper wasps. Social wasps live together in groups and work together to maintain their nests and gather food for the colony.

Solitary Wasps — Solitary wasps living in our area include cicada killers and mud daubers. Solitary wasps live and nest alone and do not form colonies. However, it's common for many of the same types of wasps to live in the same area.

The main characteristics of wasps include:

  • Three body segments — head, thorax, and abdomen.
  • A pointed lower abdomen.
  • A narrow waist or petiole that separates the abdomen from the thorax.
  • A body devoid of hair or fuzz.
  • Wide color varieties include yellow, brown, black, metallic blue or green, and bright red.
  • Nests created from a papery substance produced from saliva and wood fibers.
