WHAT ARE WASPS? MOST COMMON WASP IN TORONTO

Many people don’t realize the difference between wasps, bees and hornets. In Toronto, if your summer picnic is suddenly being terrorized by fast moving, black and yellow insects with stingers, there is a good chance it they are yellow jackets, a type of predatory wasp of the genera Vespula and Dolichovespula. There are many types of wasps, but most common pest in urban Toronto and southern Ontario are the eastern yellow jacket (Vespula maculifrons).

Sometimes confused as ‘meat bees’ their appearance is similar to common bees, yet wasps are very different in terms of behavior, feeding on protein and sugar instead of pollen. Yellow jackets have a distinctly thin abdomen and easily recognizable body with black and yellow stripes. They are usually about 1.5 cm long, though the Queen is much larger, around 2 cm!

IDENTIFYING A WASP NEST PROBLEM

Whether you are noticing wasps showing up too frequently on your property or you were ‘surprised’ to discover a wasp nest on your property, there are many reasons why it’s important to consult a professional wasp control expert. The regular presence of wasps can lead to bigger issues like a full wasp nest later, so the sooner you take action the less likely of getting stung!

Wasps will sacrifice their lives to defend the nest, making them very threatening, to say the least. Once a worker wasp is threatened or detects a foreign intruder, they will release pheromones to alert other wasps and rally the troops to action. Unlike bees that feed off pollen, wasps hunt and forage for food sources (like protein and sugar), making them aggressive in nature, and therefor dangerous. Combine their need their need to forage, their natural hunter instinct, their complex social structure and territorial defensive mechanisms, and then you start to understand why it’s so hard to get rid of a wasp nest.
