Ant or Wasp


Active Member
I am always suspicious of ant sized winged insects I find in the house as I dont want to have termites or carpenter ants.

Here's something I found this summer (eastern washington resident). I vote wasp, based on the narrow waste, and the pointed abdomen, and the fact that the tail was pulsing like I think a wasps does.

Is this a wasp?

What should I look out for with respect to destructive house invading social insects?
