How to identify wasp and hornet nests
When it comes to bees, wasps, and hornets, it can be hard to identify what species you are dealing with. Many people confuse bees for wasps and wasps for hornets, which is dangerous considering some pose more of a threat than others. The best way to identify the differences between these insects is by learning what their nests look like:
- Paper wasp nests: Paper wasps construct open, exposed nests that most often resemble upside-down umbrellas.
- Yellow jacket nests: Yellow jackets build nests that are covered in a papery substance and are often found within wall voids or cavities in the ground.
- Bald-faced hornets: This species also builds papery-covered nests that can be located in natural cavities like tree stumps or cavities within buildings.

DIY hive removal
When it comes to bees, wasps, and hornets, there’s always a risk of the insect stinging or being aggressive toward you. For that reason alone, it’s important to not attempt to control bee or wasp problems yourself. Even during the cooler months when nests appear abandoned, they still aren’t completely safe to approach. Especially if you or someone nearby is allergic to bee stings, trying to handle a bee problem with DIY methods is simply out of the question.
