Are Wasps Dangerous?
Wasps are predators that eat other bugs and insects. That can be a good thing, you just don’t want them in or around your home. If wasps feel threatened or agitated, they will sting. Unlike bees, they have a smooth stinger and can sting multiple times.
If you get into a situation where many wasps in a nest are disturbed, it can quickly become dangerous. Each time they sting, they inject more venom. If you or a family member is allergic to their venom, you could experience a life-threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.

How to Identify a Wasp
Identifying a wasp can be a tricky endeavor, as there are many different species of wasps that vary in size, color, and behavior. Generally, wasps have narrow waists and two pairs of wings, and can range in size from 1/2 an inch to 1 1/2 inches long. They are usually yellow, black, or brown in color and have stripes or other markings.
A wasp’s behavior can also be a helpful identifier. Wasps are generally solitary creatures, but they can be seen in large numbers when they are nesting or defending their nests. Wasps also have a tendency to sting, so if you are close enough to observe a wasp’s behavior, it is important to be cautious and use a safe distance. Take a look at some of the different types of wasp below.
These wasps are typically 1-inch in length and can vary in coloration from reddish to dark brown. Paper wasp nests are constructed from chewed wood fiber. They are commonly found in eaves, garages, sheds, shrubbery, and other protected areas.
These wasps are often mistaken for honey bees. Yellowjackets are similar in size to them (about a half-inch in length). They have black and yellow markings but are hairless.
Yellowjackets prefer to nest in the ground, often taking over old mammal burrows, and are aggressive if disturbed. They also nest in eaves or attics.
One of the largest wasps in the United States- cicada killers prey on adult cicadas. These wasps can be seen attacking cicadas in the air. They are big and look scary, but are relatively docile unless you are a cicada. They make their nests in the ground.
Mud daubers are about three-quarters to 1-inch in length and can vary in coloration between species. Many are black, but others can be black with yellow markings or iridescent blue-black color. They are the least aggressive of the wasps.
Keep Wasps Away from Your Kids!
As we’ve mentioned above, wasps can cause a lot of pain and can even cause an allergic reaction in some people. Wasps are attracted to sweet smells and food, so it’s not uncommon for them to swarm around kids who are eating or drinking something sweet. Unfortunately, if a wasp feels threatened, it will sting, and it can be very painful. In extreme cases, the sting can cause an allergic reaction.
If you’re dealing with wasps stinging kids, it’s important to take action and get wasp removal services. Our team will be able to identify the problem and find a solution to get rid of the wasps. By getting wasp removal services, you can help keep your kids safe and reduce the risk of them being stung.
