Types of Wasps

There are over 30,000 species of wasps across the globe. Wasps can be divided into two types based on size and shape: solitary and social.
Solitary wasps live alone and build their nests. These wasps are often predators, preying on other insects to feed their larvae.
Social wasps live in colonies with a strict hierarchy. The colony is headed by a queen who lays eggs and is cared for by the worker wasps. Then, the workers go out to collect food for the colony and build the nests.

Wasps play an essential role in nature as pollinators and pest control agents. However, their sting can be painful and dangerous for humans, so it’s essential to be aware of the different types of wasps outdoors.

Several types of wasps include Paper Wasps, Yellow Jackets, Tarantula Hawks, and Hornets. Wasps are beneficial to gardens as they help to pollinate plants and control pests. However, they can also be a nuisance if they build their nests near areas where people congregate.

Paper Wasps

Paper Wasps are a type of wasp that is commonly found in North America. These wasps are known for their paper-like nests, which they build out of chewed wood and plant fibers. Paper Wasps are not naturally aggressive, but they will sting if they feel threatened. Paper Wasps are not considered a big problem, but if their nests are in places people often go, they can be annoying.

Yellow Jackets

The Yellow Jacket is a wasp that is found in North America. It is yellow and black and has a sting that can be painful. The Yellow Jacket is a social wasp, meaning it lives in colonies. These colonies can be large, and they can contain thousands of wasps. The Yellow Jacket is essential to the ecosystem because it helps pollinate plants. It is also a predator of other insects, which helps control the population of these insects. However, this wasp can be dangerous when disturbed, and it will defend itself if it feels threatened. Yellow Jackets do not build very complex nests but use mud to hold them together. They also use a sticky substance called Propolis to strengthen the outside of their nests.

Tarantula Hawk

A Tarantula Hawk is a giant wasp whose sting is considered the most painful of all insect stings. The wasp preys on Tarantulas, paralyzing them with its sting before dragging them back to its nest, where it lays its eggs. The Tarantula Hawk’s larvae then feed on the Tarantula.

People have said the pain from a Tarantula Hawk’s sting is “blinding, fierce, and instant.” It has been likened to hot oil pouring onto the skin or a nail being driven into the flesh. The pain typically lasts for about five minutes before subsiding. However, some report that the pain can last for hours or even days.

Even though a Tarantula Hawk’s sting hurts a lot, it is not considered dangerous.

Hornets

Hornets are a type of wasp distinguished by their large size and aggressive nature. They live in temperate and tropical areas worldwide but are most common in Asia. Hornets are predators, and their diet consists primarily of other insects.

Hornets build nests out of paper-like material that they produce themselves. These nests can be large and contain hundreds or even thousands of Hornets. The nests are usually built-in trees or shrubs, but they can also be found in man-made structures like houses or sheds.

Hornets can inflict painful stings, and their venom can cause severe allergic reactions in some people. In rare cases, Hornet stings can even be fatal.
