Do you know that there are over 30,000 wasp species across the globe and a vast majority of them inhabit in colonies that are composed of over a dozen to approximately 15,000 members. That being said, you can just imagine the damage that they may bring if a full infestation takes place. To stop this from happening, it’s best to learn more about their appearance and behaviours.

When it comes to size and appearance, they are 1.5 inches in length and come with two pairs of wings. While they look pretty similar to bees, what differentiates them are their slender bodies that are complemented by narrow waists, pointed lower abdomens, as well as black and yellow (sometimes white)bands on their stomach. All wasp species have chewing mouthparts and the females are armed with stingers. When it comes to their activity, wasps are common during daylight hours and are most active during summer and early fall months.

In Canada, the dominant species are paper wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets. Considering all these factors it can be said that when it comes to wasp control, you need to hire a tried and tested pest control company like Truly Nolen.
