About Bees and Wasps
Yellow jackets are a wasp and measure around 1/2-inch long. They typically have bands of yellow around their abdomen with no hair. They have a stinger with barbs and can sting repeatedly. Their venom can be life-threatening to people allergic to it.
They build their nests in soil cavities, shrubs, trees, attics, porches, eaves of houses, hollow walls and flooring. Their nests are made from wood fiber that they have chewed to a pulp. These nests resemble a hornets’ nest and can be size of a basketball. Even though they are beneficial as a predator for pest insects, they do not belong around people and buildings.

Hornets are a wasp and measure around 2 ½- inch long. Their nests are a series of cells arranged in layers called combs. The nests are commonly found hanging from tree branches but they can also be under overhangs and inside hollow walls of buildings.
They defend their nests by stinging until the prey is killed. People allergic to bee stings are allergic to hornet stings. The hornet will sting mostly insects, but the yellow jacket can be aggressive toward humans.
Cicada killer wasps are large, reaching lengths up to 2-inches. They are colored a reddish/black and are hairy. They dig burrows up to 10-inches deep along sidewalks, patios, planters, flowerbeds, shrubs and driveways. They are not as aggressive as yellow jackets and hornets.
