Wasp Appearance and Size Facts

Wasps are notorious insects and range from one to two inches in length. Recognized for their slender, narrow-waisted bodies and long legs, they come in varying shades of reddish-orange to brown or black. Their smooth, shiny skin adds to their distinctive appearance, setting them apart from other stinging insects like bees. Notably, wasps can sting repeatedly, and their aggression is triggered when they feel threatened or are defending their nest. Only females can sting, and they may attack humans when provoked.

Behavior and Habitat of Wasps

Wasps are social insects that form colonies and build paper nests in different locations, from tree branches to eaves and attics. Their aggressive nature is evident as they fiercely defend their nests through stinging, making them a nuisance around households. Within their colonies, they have a caste system comprising workers, males, and reproductive female queens.


Signs of Infestation of Wasps

The most evident sign of a wasp infestation is the presence of nests around your property. These nests, often found hanging from leaves, tree branches, or in attics, serve as a clear indication of a wasp colony. Additionally, increased wasp activity and aggressive behavior signify a potential infestation as they become defensive of their nests. If you observe a high number of wasps flying around, especially near their nests, don’t put yourself in danger. Just call Hulett instead.

Tips for Prevention of Wasps

To minimize the presence of wasps in and around your home, keep food and trash containers sealed. Regularly inspect your property for potential nesting sites, paying attention to eaves, attics, and tree branches.

Outside, you should promptly remove any existing nests and seal entry points to prevent wasps from building new ones.
