How to Identify a Wasp?
Wasps can sometimes be confused with other similar-looking insects such as ants or bees. However, it’s important to be able to identify a wasp due to its sometimes aggressive-and-intrusive nature. Here’s how to identify a wasp and distinguish it from bees or other similar insects:
Colour: Wasps are often brownish in colour with yellow, red, or black markings.
Body structure: Wasps have two rear legs that hang low and dangle when they fly. They look different from a bee because a bee’s legs are difficult to spot when it is flying. Also, their wings rest against their body when they land unlike a bee whose wings will stick out to the side. Wasps also have thin waists and unlike bees, do not have visible hair on their bodies.
Size: Depending on the specific type of wasp, its body will measure somewhere between 1.3 cm to 1.8 cm in length.
Nests: Wasps’ nests are made up of multiple layers unlike bees that live in hives made of honeycomb. Also, unlike bees, wasps do not swarm around their nest.
Signs of a Wasp Infestation
Locating a wasp infestation is difficult because they build their nests underground or in high, lofty areas that are not always visible. However, with careful observation, you will be able to identify a wasp infestation. Some signs of an infestation include an increasing presence of wasps in the area, humming noises coming from behind bushes or in trees, the existence of a nest under roof eaves, behind shutters, in garden sheds, and readily available food sources such as open food containers or garbage bins.
