There are two categories of wasps: social and solitary. The wasps that swarm around you at your barbeque are social wasps. Solitary wasps aren’t aggressive and rarely sting. Hornets, yellowjackets, and paper wasps are all social wasps. All three live in large colonies with one queen. They commonly have narrow wings that fold longitudinally, nests made of recycled wood fibers, and, of course, the ability to sting repeatedly. Although these wasps have traits in common, there are a few things that set them apart.
Paper wasps are about 1” long, have long legs, and range in color. They can be reddish-orange to black, sometimes with yellow highlights. Paper wasp colonies number fewer than 100 wasps. When they fly, their long legs dangle.
Yellowjackets are the smallest at ½” in length. They can be mistaken for honey bees because of the yellow markings on their bodies. When they fly, yellowjackets tuck their legs into their body.
