Wasp Identification & Prevention

Frequently Asked Questions About Wasps

What are wasps?

The abdomens of wasps appear smooth and bullet-shaped. They have dark colored wings, usually ranging from dark amber to black that fold lengthwise, making the wings appear smaller than they really are. Their nests are made of paper-like material, which is a mixture of wood and salivary secretions of the female wasps.
