Wasp landing on a table

A wasp is a small, hard-bodied insect that lives in the family of Waspidae. They are known for their stings and their ability to construct nests. The wasp is also known for its yellow or brown thorax and black pronotum. They have a long, slender body. It is often found hiding in the wood behind trees. A wasp can sting a person using its stinger located on the end of its abdomen. When fully extended, the wasp’s stinger will be red or purple and can deliver a painful sting.

What Are The Different Types Of Wasps?

The different types of wasps include robber bees, yellow jackets and hornets. These species are all known for their ability to sting humans. These wasps are not venomous, but they still are dangerous to humans.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps

The best way to get rid of wasps from your home is by using a professional home pest control service. You can prevent wasps from infesting your home by ensuring that you do not have any nesting materials in the area. The best way to deter wasps from attacking you is to ensure you do not attract them. Do not leave any food or materials where they can get trapped. 

How To Identify If You Have A Wasp In Your Home?

Wasps come in many varieties, and each behaves differently. To determine if you have a wasp in your home, it is important to understand the different forms they can take and how they affect different parts of your home. 

The most common type of wasp in homes is the yellow jacket wasp, which can be found in areas such as the basement, closets, and toolboxes. If you see a yellow jacket wasp in your home, it is important to call the pest control company immediately. 

Another common type of wasp is the black widow. Black widow wasps are typically found outdoors in buildings or on trees. They are attracted to the smell of rotting food, so if you have a dead mouse in your home or pet food, these wasps are likely to feed on it. There are several types of Black Widow Wasps, but they all have the same general appearance. They are usually brown or black and have three pairs of legs. They will also fly around looking for food, but they do not like being disturbed. If a wasp is disturbed, it will often attack. They are usually found in groups of three or more. They are not very dangerous, but they will bite if you get closer. They leave their webs in corners, under tables, and around furniture.  


There are many ways to get rid of wasps in your home, but some of the most popular methods include using a pesticide, swarm controller, and traps. The best way to determine which method is right for you depends on the size of the wasp, the location of the wasp nest, and your personal preferences.
