Types of Wasps in Henderson NV
There are over 4,000 species of wasps in the United States. Below are the most commonly found in Nevada.
Yellowjackets: This species is the most recognizable. Their black and yellow bodies are a trademark of their arrival. They usually make an appearance in late winter or early spring. Enjoying a drink outside during this time of year is when these wasps generally get interested. Their enthusiasm isn’t with you; it’s what you are consuming. During this time of year, natural sources of food usually fade, and they are hungry. They can be seen buzzing around trash cans, rotting food, and any location that provides something for them to eat. Swatting doesn’t seem to detour them, occasionally it will make them angrier, and they will take that anger out on what is swinging at them. Yellowjackets are masters of avoiding getting hit. However, unless provoked, they will very rarely sting.
Mud Daubers: These insects are rarely seen away from water when constructing their nests. They are called mud daubers considering these wasps need mud to make their nursery. Usually showing up when lawns are being watered or just after a good soaking rain, they generally mind their own business. Trying to build a place to raise their young, mud daubers won’t bother anyone. Even when approached, they usually fly away. Parents need to remember; children like to play in the mud too. The trouble starts when they construct a nest in nearby trees, in garages, or under eaves.
Paper wasps: In North America alone, there are more than 300 different species of paper wasps. Coming in an array of colors, they have been cataloged with brown, yellow, or red exoskeletons. They are easily identified by the umbrella-shaped nests they build. Nests are generally small and appear in doorways and under overhangs. It amazes entomologists and exterminators alike that paper wasps build in high traffic areas. Paper wasps are another species that are generally docile, but if they feel threatened, they will attack.
Bald Faced Hornets: These insects are the best reason for wasp control. They are called a variety of names, bald-faced hornet, bald hornet, white-faced hornet, black jacket, white-tailed hornet, spruce wasp, black jacket, and bull wasp. Even with all these obnoxious names, this species is a yellowjacket wasp, by scientific terms, not a real hornet. These are nasty customers. Their way of handling intruders is to not only sting but spray the same venom on to their victims. Although their aim is still a subject of debate, it is thought that they spray their infiltrators’ eyes. Bald Faced Hornets leave little doubt as to their presence. The nests are built high off the ground and can be as large as 24″ across and 18″ long. Engineers are amazed at the design and efficiency of their nests. These wasps build only what is needed to raise the next generation.
The Good news About Wasps
Many had wondered what Mother Nature was thinking when she created wasps. One must admit with all their negatives; there has to be positive. Yes, there is. Wasps are beneficial to plant life in general. They eat the insects that harm our garden flowers and shrubs. A favorite of the Bald Faced Hornets is horse flies and deer flies. If a horsefly has ever bitten you, you can take solace that there is something just as vicious after them.
Don’t try this at home.
Attempting to get rid of a wasp’s nest on your own is not a wise decision. Some sprays can soak a nest from a distance. It may sound like a reasonable solution but, consider the consequences. You start spraying, and there are a few wasps that escape your aim. Who are they going to come after?
