Wasps can be easily found in the months of summer. In Canada, people are very annoyed with wasps because of their painful sting. Although, they have a unique black and yellow body but sometimes they are confused with bees or hornets.

The structure and size of wasps varies according to the species. Most of them has a pinched waist and a pair of wings. The color range of these creatures varies from black to metallic blues and greens. The length of wasps varies from microscopic to several centimeters.

The species of wasps are categorized into two; solitary or social. As the name implies, solitary wasps prefer to live alone and thus, don’t have a colony whereas social wasps live in colonies and in those colonies, thousands of other wasps live. In these colonies, all the duties inside the nest are performed by females. Like social wasps, solitary wasps also lay eggs but the difference is that, the eggs of solitary wasps are left alone to hatch.

Amongst all the species of wasps, some are predatory whereas others are parasitic. The predatory wasps kill and eat other insects and tiny animals. They are further used to feed their larvae. Parasitic wasps usually lay their eggs in other living creatures’ body, mostly spiders and caterpillars. The larvae feed on the live host. Wasps also works as biological control agents because in agricultural sector, they assist in managing other pests. There are many wasps who feed upon the flowers’ nectar and thus functions as pollinators.

Some species of wasps is aggressive and if threatened, generally stings. When it comes to their ability to sting, they are different from honey bees and can sting several times.


In the late summer season, queen wasp produces some unfertilized eggs. The larvae from these eggs develop into males. These males further fertilize the female wasps who become the following year’s queen. These fertilized female wasps hibernate in a sheltered location. In maximum cases, the remaining colony perishes during winters. In the next summer, queen starts laying eggs and the fertilized eggs become workers who build the nest and feed the larvae which queen produced.
