The prevalent wasp species commonly encountered are Solitary & Social Wasps, such as Yellow Jackets, Hornets, Paper Wasps, and Mud-daubers. Mud-daubers, for instance, offer benefits by helping regulate spider and insect populations and serving as effective pollinators.

Despite their advantageous qualities, bee and wasp stings can induce considerable pain and lead to localized skin redness. However, certain individuals may experience allergic reactions that manifest as severe symptoms, potentially even resulting in fatality.

Distinct from both bees and ants, a wasp boasts a longer and narrower body, even though it might share a similar coloration with bees. Their aggressive nature sets wasps apart from bees, rendering their stings more potent and at times perilous due to the potency of their stinger. Remarkably, wasps can administer repeated stings as their stingers remain functional following the initial sting.
