Common Wasps in The Seattle Region

Yellow Jackets are well known for stinging people and are the most commonly encountered in Washington. Wasps, unlike bees, are narrow and smooth and shiny. They mostly prey on insects, including caterpillars, flies, and crickets. They also love to seek out human food and garbage and are usually seen at picnics and campgrounds around Seattle and surrounding areas. Wasps establish a new nest each spring and rarely re-use their old nests, and they love to build their nest in attics of garages, barns, and sheds. If you have been stung, the Washington State Department of Health offers tips on how to treat the sting on their site.

Paper wasps are less aggressive than yellowjackets and don’t usually sting humans unless their nest is close to humans. Paper wasps are similar in appearance to yellowjackets but are slightly darker and are more slender with longer legs. Their nests can house nearly 250 wasps. We usually recommend that a nest on your property call a professional to remove the nest to avoid being stung.

There can be anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand wasps living in a single nest. The size of the nest depends on the species of wasp and the time of year.

Absolutely. When a wasp nest is destroyed, the infrastructure that supports the colony is eliminated, prompting the surviving wasps to search for a new location. However, a few crucial points to remember include:

  1. Immediate Threat: Disturbing a wasp nest can provoke the insects, making them more aggressive. This is a defense mechanism as they perceive a threat to their colony.
  2. Safety First: It’s advisable to approach wasp nest removal with caution. Wearing protective clothing and ensuring the face and eyes are shielded is crucial.
  3. Optimal Time: If you’re considering removing a nest alone, aim for the early morning or late evening when wasps are less active.
  4. Seek Professional Help: Hiring a professional pest control service is often the best approach to mitigate the risk of stings or incomplete removal. They have the equipment and expertise to handle wasp nests efficiently.
  5. Preventative Measures: Consider preventative steps to deter wasps from returning after removal. This might include sealing off potential nesting sites and using natural repellents.
