• Wasps (Paper Wasps, Mud Wasps, Hornets, & YellowJackets)

    There are over one hundred thousand species of wasps all around the world. Wasps spend most of their time gathering food or building a nest for a colony with one egg laying queen and many non-reproductive workers.  Wasps become pests when their numbers are excessive or they become annoying to humans. People are often stung by wasps in late summer when wasp workers start searching for sugary food and come into contact with humans. Stings are usually painful and in some cases may cause life-threatening allergic reactions.
