Wasps are not just annoying- but are also incredibly hard to control. There are three kinds of wasps- solitary hunting, social and parasitic wasps. Solitary hunting wasps are those that lay eggs and seal the nests. These wasps have extremely powerful stings, which can also be fatal. Social wasps are amongst the most common kinds that you will find. Their habitats are usually near areas inhabited by humans, and their stings are also powerful and can be quite painful. Parasitic wasps are the ones that lay eggs in or on other insects, with the young ones developing in and almost killing the hosts.
