How to Identify Wasps: Wasps v. Other Stinging Insects

It can be easy to confuse one stinging insect type for another, but the reality is that wasps are actually quite different from other stinging pests (including bees, hornets and yellow jackets). Although there are a number of types of wasps common to Connecticut, a majority can be identified by:


  • Two pairs of wings
  • Modified ovipositor that doubles as a stinger
  • Little or no hair on the body
  • Not likely be found on or in water (very rare if so)
  • Most likely prey on other insects
  • Constricted waist between the abdomen and thorax called a petiole
  • Pointed lower abdomen
  • Both simple and compound eyes, the former being found between the compound eyes in a triangular formation
  • Segmented antennae
  • Slender, cylindrical legs
