Common Wasps Along The Front Range

Yellowjackets: Usually nest in the ground in existing hollows. They can be identified by their banded body of yellow or orange and black. They are small and can be mistaken for a honeybee, but they lack the hairy body of the bee. Build a nest in an enclosed paper envelope and will sting when their nest is disturbed.

Wester Yellowjacket: Very aggressive and the cause of at least 90 percent of the “bee stings” in the state, according to Colorado State University. This species is a major nuisance to households and can form up to 200 wasps in a colony.

Hornets The most common hornet in Colorado is the Baldfaced Hornet, which is marked with black and white stripes. They make large paper nests in shrubs, trees, and under building eaves. They are not aggressive and rarely sting unless their nest is disturbed.

Paper Wasps: Are slender-bodied wasps with longer legs than other wasps. There are two paper wasps in Colorado, the Wester Paper Wasp, and the non-native European Paper Wasp. The Western Paper Wasp is reddish-brown with yellow markings while the European is shinier with black and yellow markings. These wasps will make their nests under building overhangs, within metal gutters and poles, and similar places. Because of their close proximity to households, they are a common culprit for wasp stings.

If you have Yellowjackets or Paper Wasps near your home, you should have them removed as soon as possible. Call Highlands Ranch Family Pest Control to have them professionally exterminated.
