Wasps

Regular old Paper Wasps are the most common kind we get here in Texas. Nearly every home in Texas has at least one nest on it but we often see homes with anywhere from 5 to 25 nests on them.

Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jackets may look a lot like the common Texas Paper Wasp, but their nest have quite a different meaning for your family.

Bees

The common honey bee is the “friendliest” on this list of stinging pests. They are the least likely to sting your family.

Hornets

Hornets in Texas can usually be identified by their nest or hive. They build a large football shaped nest like the one in the picture above. These nests are usually hanging in a tree, but can sometimes be hanging on structure such as your home, shed or playset.

Questions that People Most Frequently Ask Us

Take a look at some of the typical questions that pop up in the minds of our clients

How do wasps build their nests?

Wasps build their nests by chewing wood into a pulp. They then shape this pulp into the desired shape and allow it to harden. Once the nest is complete, the wasps will lay their eggs inside of it.

What should I do if a wasp is chasing me?

If a wasp is chasing you, it is likely because it feels threatened. Try to calm down and avoid making sudden movements. Once the wasp has flown away, you should be safe.

Where do wasps go in the winter?

Some types of wasps hibernate in the winter, while others die off. However, the queens of most wasp species survive the winter by burrowing into the ground and creating a cocoon. When spring arrives, the queen will emerge from her cocoon and begin to build a new nest.

Can wasps pollinate or make honey?

Yes, some types of wasps are able to pollinate flowers. However, wasps do not make honey like bees do. Instead, they make a substance called pollen that they use to feed their young.

Why do wasps keep coming back to my home or business?

If you have wasps on your property, it is likely because they have built a nest nearby. Wasps will often build their nests in trees or bushes, but they can also build them in the eaves of buildings.

Where do wasps live?

Most wasps live in nests that they build themselves. These nests can be found in a variety of locations, including trees, bushes, and even the eaves of buildings. In some cases, wasps will build their nests underground.

What time of day are wasps most active?

Wasps are most active during the day, especially when it is sunny outside. However, they can also be active at night, particularly if there is artificial light nearby.

Can a wasp sting more than once?

Yes, a wasp can sting more than once. In fact, some wasps can sting multiple times in quick succession. However, most wasps will only sting once and then fly away.

Are wasps dangerous?

While wasps are not typically aggressive, they can become dangerous if they feel threatened. If a wasp stings you, it can cause pain and swelling. In some cases, wasp stings can also cause allergic reactions.

What is a wasp?

A wasp is a winged insect that is related to bees and ants. Wasps are often brightly colored, with yellow and black stripes being the most common pattern. Some wasps can be up to an inch long, while others may be as small as a fraction of an inch.
