Understanding Wasps: What Are They?

Wasps are flying insects closely related to bees and ants. Often brightly colored with yellow or black stripes, they can vary in size, ranging from a few millimeters to over 2.5 cm long. Unlike their bee cousins, who are docile and vital for pollination, wasps are aggressive predators. They live in colonies, often comprising thousands of individuals and with a strict social hierarchy.

The Bad and The Ugly: Pest Wasps

Though most wasp species are beneficial to humans—preying on insects that damage crops or carry diseases—some are downright pests. The German yellowjacket (Vespula germanica) stands out in this category. Native to Europe and introduced to North America, this 12mm long wasp with a black and yellow striped abdomen has become a significant concern for homeowners.

Problems Caused by Wasps

Property Damage

One of the main issues with pest wasps is the damage they can do to your property. They build nests in inconvenient places like eaves, gutters, and wall cavities and can chew through wood, insulation, and other materials.

Health Risks

Wasps can pose a real danger to humans. Though they usually sting only when threatened, their stings can be excruciatingly painful. In some cases, they can even cause severe allergic reactions.

Nuisance at Gatherings

If you enjoy outdoor gatherings, wasps can be a nuisance, especially when food is involved. Attracted to sweet foods and drinks, they often try to steal snacks, making your picnics or BBQs less than enjoyable.
