Types of Wasps
Around the world, there are more than 30,000 types of wasps. In North America, there are approximately 4,000 different types of wasps, but only a small handful of them are considered common pests.
- Paper: Brownish in color, paper wasps consume dead wood material to build their waterproof, umbrella-shaped nests in residential yards. Found throughout the U.S., their colonies usually contain between 12 and 100 wasps.
- Bald-faced hornet: Bald-faced hornets are black with white patterns on most of the face. Found throughout the U.S., these wasps build their paper nests 3-4 feet off the ground in trees, shrubs, houses, sheds, or other structures. Their colonies contain between 100 and 400 wasps.
- Mud dauber: Usually black with pale markings or a blue metallic luster, mud daubers construct their nests out of mud. Found throughout the U.S., these wasps tend to build their nests in sheltered areas such as under eaves, on porch ceilings, and in garages, sheds, barns, and attics. They do not live in colonies.
- Yellowjacket: With yellow and black patterns over their head and body, yellowjackets live in colonies with up to 4,000 workers. They construct their paper nests in trees, shrubs, or other protected places such as soil cavities and tree stumps.
- Cicada killer: Cicada killer wasps nest in the ground, leaving mounds of dirt with a hole in the center. Their nests are often found in places where sunlight is present, near shrubs or the sidewalk. Found throughout the U.S., these black and pale yellow solitary wasps do not live in colonies.

Are Wasps Dangerous?
Unless you are allergic, a single wasp sting is not dangerous. However, wasps can severely injure someone when they attack in packs. Unprovoked wasp stings are very rare. However, since wasps are territorial, they will not hesitate to attack anyone that disturbs their nest. They often attack in packs within seven meters of their nests and can sting repeatedly, making them potentially dangerous. Since wasps are attracted to food, they are also known to sting someone too close to the food they are attracted to.
Our wasp control experts recommend staying safe by avoiding wasp and their nests. If you find a nest on your property, reach out to our team at once. We have extensive experience with wasps and know exactly how to safely and effectively remove them from your property.
