What Type Of Wasp Species Live in Southern Ontario


  • Paper Wasps - With their distinct brown and black stripes marked with sunny yellow accents - paper wasps dance across the Canadian landscape. These typically solitary creatures can sometimes be seen building extraordinary paper nests on tree branches or house eaves. Despite its mild sting, a disturbed paper wasp nest is best avoided as it may elicit an aggressive response!

  • Bald-faced Hornets - Not as common in Canada, yet still found across some areas like Brampton, Ontario are the bald-faced hornets which are social wasps with a bold black and white pattern. These large insects may build their distinctive paper nests high up in trees or shrubs, but they can also be commonly seen on walls of buildings! You should keep your distance from hornet nests though; these stinging wasps pack quite a punch if provoked. Hornet infestations are best left to pest control services and should. be dealt with ASAP since a small hornet nest can grow rapidly and become more dangerous and costly to remove the bigger it gets.

  • Yellowjacket Wasps - Fearsome yet beautiful, yellow jackets are an aggressive species of social wasp known for their vibrant yellow and black colours. Found in various parts across Canada, they often build paper nests hidden away from view - such as inside tree trunks, walls, or attics – leaving unsuspecting victims vulnerable to painful stings. For those with allergies especially, disturbing a wasp sting could be fatal; it's better to leave wasp removal to the pros.

  • Mud Dauber Wasps - These solitary wasps are gentle creatures that build their nests out of earthy materials like mud, which is fitting since they are usually black or brown in colour and have narrow waists that make them look as if they came from Earth itself! Mud daubers don't typically sting unless threatened; instead, you'll see them flying around gardens hunting spiders to feed their young. As beneficial predators help control spider populations, having some friendly mud daubers around is always recommended!

Worker Wasps

Worker wasps play several crucial roles in the colony, ensuring its survival, growth, and protection


. Here are the main responsibilities of worker wasps:

  1. Nest Building and Maintenance: Worker wasps are responsible for constructing and maintaining the nest. They chew wood fibers to create a papery substance used to build the nest's structure.

  2. Foraging: Workers search for food to sustain the colony. They collect nectar and other sweet substances for energy and hunt insects or other protein sources to feed the larvae.

  3. Feeding the Queen and Larvae: Workers tend to the queen and the developing larvae by feeding them. They regurgitate pre-digested food to feed the larvae and the queen.

  4. Defense: Worker wasps protect the nest from predators and intruders. They use their stingers to defend the colony from threats.

  5. Temperature Regulation: Workers help regulate the temperature within the nest by fanning their wings to cool it down or clustering together to generate heat, ensuring a stable environment for the larvae and the queen.

  6. Cleaning: Workers keep the nest clean by removing debris and dead insects. This helps maintain a healthy environment within the colony.


Through these various tasks, worker wasps play an essential role in the overall functioning and success of the colony.

Risks of DIY Wasp Removal


Attempting DIY wasp removal  can be risky and lead to nasty stings. Wasps are highly territorial and can attack in large numbers if they feel threatened. These painful stings can cause severe allergic reactions in some people. Additionally, DIY methods are often ineffective and may even make the problem worse. In some cases, using the wrong methods or not removing the nest quickly enough can agitate the wasps, causing them to attack. Since wasps can sting multiple times its always wise to keed a safe distance.

Super Easy Homemade Wasp Trap

Making a homemade wasp trap can be a great and cost-effective way to remove wasps and can passively reduce their numbers.

  1. You will need a 2 litre plastic bottle, some sugar water, tape, and scissors for this wasp removal method. Begin by cutting the bottle in half, about two inches below the "shoulders" of the bottle.

  2. Next mix some sugar water by dissolving sugar into heated water, then letting it cool. Pour the solution into the top half of the bottle and attach it to the bottom half with transparent tape until it forms a tight seal.

  3. Hang the trap near target areas and make sure its away from reach of children and pets. The sugar solution will attract wasps, allowing them to enter but not exit from the trap. Be sure to check your trap frequently so you can safely dispose of any captured insects.


What Do Wasps Hate

Wasps are generally territorial insects and may become aggressive if threatened or if their nest is disturbed. While there is no surefire way to repel wasps, there are some home remidies that may, including:

  1. Peppermint oil: Wasps are repelled by some essential oils, the strong scent of peppermint oil is disliked by wasps. You can try spraying this essential oil around your outdoor living area or near the target wasp nests.

  2. Citronella: The strong scent of citronella can also be used to repel wasps. You can light citronella candles or use citronella oil in a diffuser.

  3. Cucumber: Wasps are known to dislike the scent of cucumbers. You can try placing cucumber slices around your outdoor living area to discourage wasps from coming around.

  4. Vinegar: A mixture of equal parts water and white vinegar can be used to create a wasp deterrent spray. Spray the mixture around potential nesting sites or areas where wasps tend to congregate.

  5. Sealing potential entry points: Wasps often enter homes through small openings in windows or doors. By sealing up these entry points, you can prevent wasps from getting inside.

It's important to note that while these methods may help to repel wasps, they may not be 100% effective, especially if there is a well-established wasp nest nearby. It's always best to exercise caution when dealing with wasps and to contact a pest control professional if you need assistance.
