Wasps are among the many pests that have attacked picnics and barbecues of many Americans. Wasps can certainly be pests, though there are actually good ones that help the ecology. They sting and their stings are rather painful. To some, it can even cause allergies.

It is important to know the types of wasps that are common in America.  Each type of wasps have different behaviors and knowing which type certainly helps you know which are the aggressive ones to stay away from, and which ones are not.

Here Are The Types Of Wasps:

They are among the most common wasps. They help rid gardens of pests, but they sting humans too and can be quite painful.

Solitary Wasps

Solitary wasps are identified by their long and thin bodies. They usually fly alone and are not aggressive. They prey on pests like beetles and aphids.

Wasp Hornet

A wasp hornet is a black wasp with white markings. They keep to themselves and usually do not bother humans, but when they feel threatened they become aggressive. When threatened, they sting so watch out for them.

Yellow Jacket Wasps

Of all the wasp types, these are the most dangerous. If you see them within your area, it is best to eliminate them. They are highly territorial, and sting when they feel threatened.
