Wasps can vary dramatically in appearance and behavior between different species. Some are social, some are solitary, some are parasites and others are predators. Unlike bees, they can be highly aggressive and sting more than once.

Characteristics of Wasps

What does a wasp look like?

Most species have two wings, with a pinched waist. Color varies from blue and green to black.

Where do wasps live?

Wasps hang their nests from tree branches, porch ceilings, windows, doorframes, soffits, eaves, attic rafters, deck floor joists and railings.

Are wasps dangerous?

Wasps are aggressive, and will sting if they are disturbed or their nest is threatened. Their stings are painful and pose the same risk of allergic reaction as other insect stings.

How do I get rid of wasps?

There are wasp sprays, but because wasps will sting when threatened, homeowners should seek out a professional rather than try to handle the situation themselves.
