Wasp Identification Guide Across the Mid West and East Coast

What are Wasps?

There are many types of wasps living throughout the United States. Typically brown with yellow or red banding, wasps have a thin, defined waist and long legs that hang from the body when in flight. Wasps usually build nests out of paper-like materials and place them up off of the ground. Having wasps on your property is a frustrating and sometimes frightening experience. If they build a nest in a doorway, it is difficult to enter or leave your home.

Wasps are predators, and when nesting near our homes, they are dangerous. When nesting outside and away from people, the wasps’ predatory feeding habits make them helpful. Wasps prey upon nuisance insects to feed their developing young.

Are Wasps Dangerous?

Wasps can sting repeatedly, and with each sting, they inject more venom into their victim. People allergic to stinging insects, whether stung once or multiple times, can develop a life-threatening reaction and require immediate medical attention. If a person is not allergic to wasp venom, they may still experience swelling for a while around the sting site.

Also, let’s not forget, along with triggering allergic reactions, wasp stings are super painful, so giving these pests a lot of personal space is always best!
