The Not-Fun Facts about Wasps
This summer has been especially full of our unwanted stinging friends. It’s important to know that wasps are predominantly social, meaning they live in large nests so it’s usually a big problem to deal with.
A nest contains a queen, workers, and males. Plenty of bright yellow and black bugs to ruin a picnic or barbecue.
What Wasps Do
Yellow jackets in particular build paper nests below ground, unlike bees who hang their nests in trees. Wasps try to protect their nests as much as possible, which is why they’re usually seen as the angriest stinging insect.
Also unlike bees, wasps can inflict multiple stings. Their nests are also very close to the home because it offers protection. They’ll often scavenge for food in recreational areas and are easily angered when bothered.
