There are many varieties of wasps that inhabit Minnesota, and the ones that usually become pests are those that live in colonies. In wasp colonies, female wasps are dominant and perform all duties within the nest. Some wasps are predatory wasps and others are parasitic. Predatory wasps kill and consume other insects as well as other animals. Parasitic wasps lay their eggs in a host body, usually creatures like caterpillars and spiders.
