Wasps, are in fact, brilliantly beneficial insects, and have been working away diligently on our behalf during the summer. Starting in spring the Queen Wasp begins to build her nest, and starts producing worker wasps that go out to scour the garden for bugs and caterpillars to feed to the nest’s young.
You may notice in late Summer and early Fall, larger swarms of Wasps. The reasoning for this is the Queen Wasp stops feeding her young and workers, so the workers go out searching for something sweet, like our soda, ice cream and anything else we have that is sweet. Once they find it, they let the rest of the nest know, and here comes the swarm.
The wasp species is generally divided into two categories: social and solitary wasps. The mud daubers that form mud-based dwellings on walls of homes and businesses, are solitary wasps. Where the social wasp lives in colonies, as mentioned above that are fed by the Queen Wasp. In many cases of wasp infestation, the best course of action is to call a pest control professional.

Wasp poison can be harmful to some people and domestic animals, especially if one has an allergic reaction to wasp stings. Some social wasps will produce a pheromone when they sting to summon other wasps from the colony, so a colony can present some danger. Additionally, some nests can damage property. This is particularly true of the solitary wasps that drill holes for dwellings.
