Yellow Jackets and Other Stinging Insects: The Facts

Yellow Jackets and Other Stinging Insects: The Facts

3 of the most common stinging insects that we experience in Northern New Jersey are Paper Wasps, Yellow Jackets, and Bald Faced Hornets.

Paper Wasps are the stinging insect that you will experience in the spring, when the temperature warms up around Wayne NJ and surrounding areas. When you are experiencing aerial flight in the months of April and May, more then likely you are seeing queen wasps, that have emerged from their overwintering hiding spaces, that are in search of building a new nest for the up and coming season.

Paper Wasps build their nests in protected areas from the elements and danger, under deck railings, under porches, near gutters, children’s play sets, soffits and eves. Their nests look like inverted umbrellas and the typical nest will have about 30 wasps in, and on the nest. Nests are at full peak mid July through August, around the areas of Passaic County, and Bergen County New Jersey. Paper Wasps inflict a pretty nasty sting when provoked.
