What’s the Difference Between a Wasp and a Hornet?

To take back control of your home or yard, you need to know the difference between a wasp and a hornet. Most wasps are smaller than hornets, typically one inch or smaller. Wasps are more likely to appear in a variety of colors, and prey on other insects.

Hornets, on the other hand, are longer and more slender. Their bodies are typically brown with yellow stripes or hints of red. Additionally, they have little to no hair on their bodies.

Wasps and hornets will nest in different places as well. Wasps prefer both aerial and ground nests. Yellowjackets, the most common type of wasps, typically nest underground. Hornets usually make their nests in aerial locations or in protected spaces off the ground such as attics or under roof eaves.
