Identification

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.

Detection

When a nest is seen, a problem has occurred. Nesting wasps may have colonies in the hundreds or thousands, and can grow to large quantities overnight.

Impact

They build their nests around human establishments, and many people are allergic to wasp stings. Due to their defensive nature, nesting wasps are easily provoked to sting when their nest is disturbed. It’s vital to seek insect pest control for the safety of you and your family or employees.

Prevention

Preventing a wasp problem is difficult, but for outdoor summertime events, it is important to eliminate their food sources. The following steps will help:

  • Keep all food and beverages in covered containers
  • Clean up spills as soon as possible
  • Use covered waste containers
