The common physique of social wasps is a curbed, lean adapter between the thorax and the stomach, that is stalk framed with a lengthy stinger. The stomach and thorax is featured with yellow, brown or red on a black core. Hornets are regularly mistaken for yellow jackets.


Yellow jackets are glaringly yellow with a black figure. Bald face hornets are black and white. Paper wasps have the common colors of wasps: yellow, brown or red markings on black.

Paper wasps regularly nest below eaves of property or beneath porch roofs.


Exterminating hornets and various wasps is better done at night-time without rattling the nest. A store-bought, hornet or wasp insecticide befits a small nest.

  •  Ÿ  Be sparing when applying insecticide on bushes or trees. The day after treating wasps on a house immediately cleanse the site of insecticide oil elements
  • Ÿ  Handling hornets or wasps requires shielding gear like a bee hat, coveralls, goggles, gloves, and a long-sleeved shirt (wear at least 2 layers)
  • Ÿ  Reconnoiter all sheltered areas of wasp activity to find a nest. Only discarding a nest doesn’t vitiate the problem, because remaining wasps will rebuild a new one
  • Ÿ  A suggested procedure is exterminating a wasp nest at night-time, when more worker wasps and the queen are in-house. Employing insecticide into a hornet nest is better at night, because the colony will be dormant and in-nest. This approach leverages the potency of the pesticide application by destroying the majority of a wasp colony. Use a flashlight swathed with red cellophane (or a red bulb), and never beam light directly at a nest
  • Ÿ  Treating a wasp nest during the day is better, after it has been sprayed and most of the colony has been eradicated. Next, remove the nest and spray the nest area (particularly its connector). Remaining worker wasps returning to the nest will contaminate themselves and gradually perish. Lastly, remove the nest specially one inside interior structure (attic, void, wall). To avoid another wasp breakout and inhibit other insects or vermin
