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 of “things that fly and have stingers.” Upon closer observation, you’ll see that they have some notable differences. Knowing what has made a home on your property will help decide the next steps to take.
We’ve outlined the key identifying factors of each category of stinging, flying insect you might see around or in your home.
Wasps and Hornets
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. Locally, you’re most likely to 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.
Yellowjackets: 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.
How to get rid of wasps and hornets
We recommend calling in a professional service for your wasp nest removal needs. This reduces the risk of injury or illness as a result of bites or stings.
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. 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.
Keep in mind, as you spray the nest, you most likely will aggravate the wasps inside. This is why knowing what type of nest you are trying to remove is so crucial. For the safest nest removal, you must prepare for the reaction and stinging habits of the inhabitants.
