Information About Wasps
The best time of the year to control wasps is in June after the queen has established her colony and while the colony is still small. But because nests are small, they are also harder to find. The best time of the day to control wasp nests is at night, they are less active then. Wasp nests that are visible and near human activity can pose a potential problem. If there is a concern about stings, you should eradicate the nest.
The term wasp is typically defined as any insect of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor ant. Almost every pest insect species has at least one wasp species that preys upon it or parasitizes it, making wasps critically important in natural control of their numbers, or natural biocontrol. Parasitic wasps are increasingly used in agricultural pest control as they prey mostly on pest insects and have little impact on crops.
The division Aculeata includes some 500 species of stinging wasps, and it has been suggested that another 200 or so have yet to be recorded by entomologists. Velvet ants (family Mutillidae) are parasites of ground-nesting wasps and bees. They live mostly in arid areas of southwestern Canada. They are brightly coloured, hairy wasps; the wingless females can give a very painful sting.
The diversity of parasitic and gall wasps in Canada is great. The number of known species is about 6000, but rises to an estimated 16 000 or more if those that are still unknown are included. Unlike most parasites, the parasitic wasps kill their hosts in feeding. Thus, they are often referred to as parasitoids.
