Wasps

Image of a common wasp.

Most paper wasps measure about 2 cm (¾ in) long and are black, brown, or reddish in color with yellow markings. Paper wasps will defend their nest if attacked. Adults forage for nectar, their source of energy, and for caterpillars to feed the larvae (young). They are natural enemies of many garden insect pests. The nests are constructed in protected places, such as under the eaves of buildings or in dense vegetation. Normally a colony of several to several dozen paper wasps inhabit the nest.

Wasps sting many people each year and most severe injuries occur from hypersensitivity or allergies to the venom of wasps’ sting. You can prevent wasps by sealing any empty cavities in your roof, or the siding on your home. Seek a professional if you have an infestation.
