Wasps are aggressive with a predatory nature and can sting multiple targets. These insects are long and thin, have dangling legs, four wings, and are mostly brightly colored. Although some wasps in Utah are wingless, they all prey on pest insects and prefer digging in the ground or staying in shrubs or up tall trees. The solitary wasp species never stay in nests while the social species nest indoors or outdoors. They lay their eggs in bodies of other parasite hosts. Wasps measure between 12 and 17 mm in length.

Homes with seniors or children should be extremely vigilant against wasp infestations since their stings may cause an allergic reaction to their skins.
