Identifying Wasps

There are many different varieties of wasps that range in size and color. Most have a pinched waist with two pairs of wings. Wasps do not go out of their way to attack, but they will sting if they feel threatened or are disturbed.

Some of the different types of wasps commonly found in the Bay Area include: 

  • Paper wasps 
  • Western yellowjackets 
  • Bald-faced hornets 
  • Mud daubers 
  • Tarantula hawks 
  • Digger wasps 

While not all wasps are aggressive, they can all sting. Wasp stings are typically very painful and, because wasps can sting multiple times, people who are stung once are at risk of suffering multiple stings. 

Identifying Hornets

Hornets are a particularly aggressive type of wasp. While all hornets are wasps, they do have some distinguishing features that set them apart from other types of wasps, such as yellowjackets.  

Some hornet-specific identifiers include: 

  • Length: Hornets are larger than other types of wasps. They are typically 1-1.5 inches long and have two pairs of wings and six legs.
  • Color: Hornet coloring depends on their particular species. Some are black and white while others are black and yellow, black and gold, or black and red-brown. 
  • Behavior: Hornets typically build large nests that are shaped either like cones or eggs. They are also more aggressive and solitary than other types of wasps. 

Because hornets are so aggressive, it’s best to call a professional for hornet control at the first sign of a hornet problem. At We Care Pest Solutions, we provide safe, effective, and long-lasting solutions for wasp and hornet infestations of all sizes.

Signs of Wasps or Hornets Around Your Home

While wasps and hornets can provide benefits around your home—they can be excellent pollinators, as well as prey on more harmful insects—their drive to protect their nests can have painful or even dangerous consequences, especially for those with wasp or hornet allergies. 

The most telling sign you are experiencing a wasp or hornet infestation is the presence of insects or finding a nest on your property.

Some places where you might find a hornet or wasp nest include: 

  • Eaves
  • Soffits
  • Gutters
  • Trees
  • Ground
  • Bushes
  • Shrubs

These insects create large, intricate nests and are likely to defend them if they feel threatened. To avoid negative encounters with these stinging pests, it is important to contact a professional pest control company with the right tools and training to deal with your wasp or hornet problem.
