What Are Wasps?
Wasps are similar to bees, except their sting is more painful and they have the ability to sting multiple times. Wasps set up nests in areas where there is a steady source of food and water. We've listed the most common different types of wasps found in San Diego.
Mud daubers are a type of wasp that make their nest from mud. These nests are often attached to walls, eaves and ceilings. These wasps rarely sting people and often keep to themselves, however their nests are unsightly and many home owners wish to have them removed to preserve the structure.
Paper wasps can be identified by their coloring, which is mostly black with yellow markings. Their honeycombed-shaped nests are often found under eaves and in overgrown bushes. Paper wasps are commonly seen drinking from pools and fountains. These wasps are not typically aggressive, but when one is killed, it releases a pheramone that attracts other paper wasps to the area.
Yellow jackets are similar in coloring to the paper wasp, except they are primarily yellow with black markings. Like other wasps, yellow jackets build their nests in eaves, attics, ceilings and overhangs. Yellow jackets feed on small insects, but they're also attracted to meat and food waste, which is why they are attracted to barbeques, trash cans and picnics.
