Safe Wasp Nest Removal in Arlington Heights IL
What does a wasp look like? Well it varies depending on species. Most have two pairs of wings and a pinched waist. They range in colors from black to metallic greens and blues, and vary in size to several centimeters long.
Wasp species are usually categorized as social and solitary. Social wasps live in colonies, where female workers perform all duties within the nest. Solitary wasps live alone and don’t belong to a colony. They lay eggs, but their eggs are left alone to hatch.
Some wasps are aggressive and can sting when threatened. Unlike honey bees, wasps often are capable to sting multiple times. But please keep in mind that wasps are generally beneficial to mankind. Several species are used as parasites to control other pests, especially in agriculture. Others are predators that can help maintain insect population. Others function as pollinators and help with plant fertilization.
