Flying insects can be dangerous to be around. Be prepared this summer and know what wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and honeybees look like, what they eat, where they live, and how aggressive they are.
Wasps are range in size. The longest wasp is just a little over one inch long. The wasps that sting often have black, yellow, or red stripes. These wasps mainly eat other insects. These flying insects generally live high above the ground or underground in nests. Wasps are not aggressive, unless they believe their hive is being disturbed. Their stinger does not remain in the skin after being stung.
