Wasps are beneficial insects, although they are generally considered to be pests because of their ability to sting. Wasps can become a problem in mid summer and fall when they may disrupt many outdoor activities.
Wasps have a slender body with a narrow waist, slender, cylindrical legs, and appear smoothed-skinned and shiny. Yellow jackets, baldfaced hornets, and paper wasps are the most common types of wasps encountered by people.
How To Keep Wasps Out
Preventative measures can be taken to keep Wasps out:
Keep foods, including pet food, covered or indoors
Cover soda cans outdoors so wasps don’t crawl in
Keep garbage in sealed cans and empty regularly

How do they make their homes?
Wasps make nests from paper. They chew up strips of bark and spit it out again to form a rough paper. Some wasps make nests in basements, sheds or dark, cool places.
