What are Wasps?
Both wasps (and bees) are highly social animals, and they usually live in colonies. They are especially prominent because they are versatile. Moreover yhey can stay in the wild and are also adaptable if they build their nests in a home.
While many people prefer to remove them, these insects can actually be beneficial. They pollinate plants and help them to grow. Moreover they eat arachnids and other pest insects including ants and caterpillars. So, if you find a wasp or a bee population in your garden, there’s a significant chance that they will help to reduce the population of other types of pests.
Bumblebees measure between ¼ inches and 1 inch in size. They have an overall fuzzy appearance, which is segmented by yellow and black marks on their bodies. They tend to build their nests from clumps of pollen, usually in a dense grass clump and in the ground. Some bumblebees also use abandoned mouse nests to build theirs.
For most of the time, bumblebees help to pollinate flowers. So, they are considered to be quite beneficial overall. However, they can also sting and their stings cause several health threats. If you find a bumblebee nest close to your house, you need to get it out.
Carpenter bees measure between half of an inch and one inch in size. They look significantly like bumblebees, but they have shiny and bare abdomens – as opposed to bumblebees, which are marked and segmented.
Interestingly, carpenter bees don’t live in colonies in nests. They bore into wood, where they settle down and grow their young. Carpenter bees can also stay in weathered and decayed wood, as well as painted wood. This means that carpenter bees are more structural threats than human threats.
The paper wasp is the most common type of wasp. They look brown in color, and they measure about an inch in size. These wasps are also umbrella-like in shape, and they don’t stay in envelopes.
The paper wasps construct their nests with a paper-like material – hence their name. Their nests usually hang from branches of trees and twigs, as well as door frames, porch ceilings, and railings.
Paper wasps are very prone to stinging. But, they are generally considered to be healthy as they control other pests.
The yellowjacket is another wasp species. They measure between ⅗ and ⅝ of an inch, and they have yellow and black body patterns – hence their names.
Yellowjacket nests are usually made of paper cartons, which can grow pretty big. Depending on the type of yellowjacket, the nest can be close to the ground (maybe on timer or logs) or aerial (attached to houses, bushes, shrubs, etc.)
Yellowjackets don’t really sting. But, when you threaten their nests, they will.
Dangers of Wasps
Wasps, like bees use their stinger for self-defense when they sense danger. Wasp venom (a poisonous substance) is transmitted to humans via the wasp’s stinger. The sting can cause significant pain and irritation. If they are disturbed they can become aggressive and attack. A wasp sting can trigger allergic reactions in some people. Other symptoms and risks include the following:
- Wasp Stings
- Severe Swelling in the stung area – as well as in surrounding areas
- Anaphylaxis and Anaphylactic shock
- Severe skin itching
Some people also develop allergic reactions to bees. If you’re such a person, you will need to move any bees from your house immediately. Be careful and watch your children if you’ve seen a wasp nest.
Some species can also affect the structural integrity of their building as they bore into wood like termites.
Signs of Infestations
Wasps are most active during the summer months. The most telling sign of a infestation is when you see a bee or wasp.
You can also notice holes and sawdust from doors and other wooden fixtures. These are significant signs that you should keep in mind.
Lastly, there are situations where you find an active bee and wasp hive in the house. This is an extreme situation, and you will need to call professionals to get them out.
How to Control Wasps & Bees
The best way to prevent problems with wasp nests is to catch them early. Small nests are easier to remove, and they won’t have dangerously large numbers of wasps in them.
- Check in corners and under eaves for early signs of wasp activity.
- Cover open food in your house
- Seal openings in your home’s exterior – Cracks, Gaps, Vents and Damaged Fly Screens
- Be careful and watch your children if you’ve seen a wasp nest
- Cover garbage cans and waste containers
- Use bee and wasp repellents
- Keep a clean environment
- Natural repellents like thyme and eucalyptus can also help to keep them away
- Keep outdoor bins covered so the wasps won’t be attracted to them, and keep doors and windows closed.
If you notice an active hive, get in touch with a professional wasp pest control service as soon as possible. Handling hives can be a bit tricky, and you don’t want to risk making things worse.
