Stinging Insects -

Stinging insects such as wasps, yellow jackets and hornets are all insects that belong to the order of insects known as hymenoptera.

The simplest way to establish what type of insect you have is by the style and location of the nest. Most wasps build nests under eaves and soffits with the nest usually being round in shape and resembling a honeycomb pattern.

Yellow Jackets have a tendency to build nests covered with a gray and black colored paper like material inside places like attics, under porches and in certain bushes. Hornets build nests that resemble a large, inverted tear-drop shaped ball which typically is attached to a tree, bush or side of a building although undisturbed tall grass can also be a favorable nesting site.

While most wasps will generally not sting a human unless they feel threatened or someone wanders too close to their nest, Yellow Jackets pose a considerable threat to humans as they may sting repeatedly and can cause allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock in severe cases.
