Most commonly known wasps are yellow jackets. These are usually black and yellow in color. Some are known to be black and white. Others may have a red abdomen instead of black. Yellow Jackets have lance-like stingers with small barbs. Wasps can be found around the home during the autumn months of the year. Wasp problems occur because they typically make nests in openings and on exterior furniture and light fixtures. They will also set up residence under light fixtures, deck railings and eaves creating even more wasp problems and wasp damage.
