Wasps

Colour: Yellow with black stripes
Size: 1 to 2.5 cm

Though there are thousands of species, the most common in Eastern Ontario are the yellow jacket and the hornet. A social wasp colony consists of a queen and between a handful and 15,000 male drones and sterile female workers. Wasps play a role in insect control and can continue to sting as they do not lose their stingers. It is best to have a professional plan as the wasp has a pheromone which causes the colony to swarm when they sense danger.
