How To Tell The Difference Between Bees, Wasps, Yellowjackets, And Hornets?


When stinging insects aren’t your favorite friends, it’s easy to lump them into one category: “things that fly and have stingers,” however they do have some notable differences. Knowing what has made a home on your property will help us know what steps to take to get rid of them.

Wasps typically have two thin wings that fold back along their body. Hornets are a type of wasp that is a bit more round and fat. Finally, bees have a different look than hornets and wasps, being more puffy, round, and hairy. Locally, you’re might see the following varieties:

Paper Wasps

A wasp about one inch long with long legs. This species is reddish-orange to black, sometimes with yellow rings.

Yellow Jackets

The smallest wasp variety you’ll see here, they are only half an inch long and colored like a bumblebee – black and yellow stripes.

Mud daubers

A black or blue colored wasp that is about an inch long with a small middle.


Bees look like rounder wasps with hair. Both their bodies and their short legs have tiny hairs covering them.


Why Wasps Keep Coming Back


Have you ever knocked down a wasp’s nest and wondered why it keeps coming back to the same spot over and over again? Wasps leave pheromones, a chemical that marks their nests; so, even when the nest is gone, they know exactly where to go.

Getting rid of wasps on your own often yields this repetitive result. If you want to get rid of them for good, contact Insight Pest Control. We have a highly effective product and method of removal that masks and even removes the pheromone so that wasps will stop coming back after the nest is gone.

How to Get Rid Of Wasps & Hornets

Call The Professionals

Don't Get Stung
We recommend calling in a professional service for your wasp nest removal needs. This reduces the risk of injury or illness that can be a result of bites or stings.

Wear Covering Clothing

Take action at night
If you commit to handling your wasp control needs on your own, we recommend that you wear long sleeves and pants and take action against the hive at night while all of the wasps are home. After spraying the insecticide to kill the unwanted insects, wait a day before completing your hornet nest removal to be confident they are all dead and no longer dangerous.

Prepare For Stinging
