ABOUT THE PESTS / OTHER PESTS / WASPS
There are about 75,000 different species of wasp, but we know them best as hornets, yellowjackets, and paper wasps. Although they exist in a wide variety of different colors and shapes, wasps have smooth bodies and are about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch long. They eat primarily spiders, and are social insects that live in a colony with one egg-producing queen.

Wasps have stingers which work similar to a hypodermic needle, and are capable of stinging repeatedly. Their venom causes the majority of the pain from a sting, as well as the ensuing irritation. Unfortunately for those who are allergic to such stings, wasps exist just about everywhere in the world.

Perhaps most familiar are paper wasps, which build their nests from a mixture of wood fibers and saliva, producing a paper-like shelter. These nests can often be found under the eaves of houses or under porch roofs.

If you see a wasp's nest attached to your home, safe and timely removal is essential in preventing the colony from growing into a serious and dangerous nuisance.
