Wasp Identification

Wasps look very similar to other flying insects like bees, hornets, and yellow jackets. Some of the distinguishing features include a pinched waist, metallic sheen over their black and yellow coloring, and ¼ to 1-inch size. 

Often, wasps will choose to build their nesting spots in eaves, soffits, gutters, siding, and other exterior surfaces. Wasps will go to lengths to defend their nests and do sometimes sting if they feel threatened. However, their sting is not as severe as that of a yellow jacket or similar pest. Those with allergies should be wary around wasps, as their venom can cause a severe reaction.
