What does a common wasp look like and what damage can they do?

With summer in full swing, wasp infestation is at an all time high. This is due to above average heat and soaring temperatures, which see wasps, congregate in residential and commercial properties. Most wasps nest structures are made of mud and are usually located on the sides and tops off your exteriors. However, these nests can also be formed in attics, basements, crawlspaces, and even inside homes. The common wasp mainly has three functions; to look for prey, breed, and feed their young. They also possess dangerous stingers that can cause serious problems for humans and domesticated pets. Wasps are also attracted to bright and vibrant colors – and if they feel in danger – can literally swarm a person, dog, or cat. With years of extensive wasp removal experience, Avon Pest Control can safely remove wasp nests and prevent infestation in all properties.

What do Wasps look like?
Wasps come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The only constant is that they have wings and stingers to protect themselves from potential predators. The common wasp is usually black and yellow in color – similar to a bee. They are, however, larger than bees and have brown colored wings. They also have two large antennae in the front of the head, which helps them track down and kill prey for feeding. Like bees, wasps do emit a buzzing sound and this gets louder when they feel they are in danger. Wasps do congregate for protection – and like bees – send out signals to other wasps when potential prey or predators are present. Wasps possess deadly and sometime fatal stings if they are attacked or provoked.
