Common Wasp Species: A Guide To Recognizing The Enemy

Wasps are all over the place here in San Antonio. Because of the wide variety of common species, it can be hard to tell them apart. Three common types of wasps you should know about are paper wasps, yellow jackets, and mud daubers.

Paper wasps are brown with yellow markings and grow to be ¾” long. Yellow jackets are black with yellow markings and grow to be ?” long. Finally, mud daubers are black with pale markings or have a metallic luster. These pests grow to be over an inch long and have an especially thin midsection. For help with wasp identification on your property, bring in our team for a quick inspection.

Health Risks Of Wasp Infestations: Allergies And Other Concerns

Getting stung by a wasp is not always life-threatening. In fact, most people can withstand over a dozen stings at one time with minimal risk. This does not mean, however, that stings do not hurt a lot. To make things worse, different types of wasps fall under different pain indexes.

Mud daubers have a minor sting that only causes mild pain. Paper wasps, on the other hand, have fairly painful stings. If you are allergic to venom, be especially careful around these pests. To find out if you are allergic, talk with your doctor about your risk.

Strategies For Wasp Prevention: Effective Tips And Tricks

It is important that you have some tools at your disposal to keep wasps off your property. Here are some of the best strategies for keeping wasps away from your home and yard.

  • Clean your yard regularly, and make sure to pick up fruits, berries, and other food that drops from trees and bushes.

  • Make sure your trash cans have tight-fitting lids and keep their exteriors clean.

  • Seal gaps, holes, and cracks around your home’s exterior.

  • Knock down newly forming wasp nests before they grow larger than a golf ball.
