Pest World for Kids: Wasps

There are 4,000 kinds of wasps in the United States.

Typically, wasps are most active during the day and usually return to their nests at dusk. These pests are often seen flying around during the second half of summer and early fall when the colonies search for food that will sustain their queens during the winter.

Teachers can find more wasp facts in addition to information and advice on teaching their kids about wasp treatment at the official NPMA website.
