Information about Wasps:

A wasp is a flying insect member of the order Hymenoptera that is neither a bee nor an ant. This includes hornets and yellow jackets. They are very frequently parasitical in nature, and nearly every type of insect has at least one species of wasp that preys upon it or uses it for parasite purposes. For this reason, many wasps are critical in containing pest species in what is called “natural biocontrol.”

Apart from having a painful sting, wasps are generally helpful to humans because they keep population of pest insects in check. Apart from the few wingless species, wasps have two sets of wings, an ovipositor or “stinger”, very little hair compared to bees, and sometimes will live solitary existences and will either be completely nomadic, or have burrows dug into the earth. But when wasps do live in colonies, the manner of nest depends on the species.

Some wasps produce nest made primarily of paper pulp which is chewed up wood fiber. Others use a mixture of matter, which can include synthetic materials like plastic or fabric. Many wasps possess extremely painful stings, and unlike bees who can only sting once, wasps can sting multiple times. The Tarantula Hawk Wasp’s sting is considered to be one of the most painful of any stinging insect.

Carpenter Ant – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Carpenter Ant:

Carpenter Ants are small invertebrates and members of the order Hymenoptera, which is one of the largest order of insects that includes wasps, bees and ants. There are about 130,000 indentified species in this order. They are indigenous to many different parts of the world, usually residing in dead and decaying wood to build their colonies and raise their offspring, carving out living areas in the wood, and that is where they get their common name from. However, they do not eat wood, and have little interest in healthy wood that is not in the process of rotting. They are extremely adaptable and will live in a variety of environments, often in manmade structures and are often viewed as destructive pests. Carpenter ants coloration can vary, even within the same species. But they are usually black, brown or a combination of the two.

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Common Yellowjacket Wasp:

Yellowjackets are common, predatory wasps native to North America. They are members of the family Vespidae, which is a group of wasp species numbering around 5,000 different insects. Yellowjackets live in colonies, usually located in trees, bushes or other protected areas, sometimes in manmade structures. These wasps are generally smaller than others, roughly the size of honey bees. They are stinging insects, and unlike bees their stinger does not detach after stinging, so they can inflict multiple stings should they need to. Only the females have a stinger.
