Wasps

Wasps have been seen setting up shop all around New England under decks, in attics, behind shutters and anywhere else they can hide a nest. The good news is that they’re relatively non-aggressive under normal circumstances. The bad news is that they’ll attacked if provoked and they can sting several times.
