Most varieties of wasps (paper wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets) favor areas of shelter away from the elements to build their nests. Paper wasps (red wasps) and are commonly found under the eaves and awnings of homes and other structures. Hornet hives are generally found hanging from trees, on the sides of structures, under large rocks or loose tree bark, and will defend their hives aggressively. Yellow jacket nests are typically underground, but are also commonly found inside wall voids. Although most varieties of wasps feed on other insects, they are often drawn to food left in open containers and trash reciprocals. Each wasp can sting repeatedly and multiple stings have been known to cause death to those with allergic reactions.
