Only Queen Wasp Live Through the Winter

Any live wasp you see during winter is a queen. Only new queens survive though the winter. Queen wasps hibernate in areas protected from freezing temperatures, but not warm enough to prevent dormancy. They’re found under tree bark or in the cracks and crevices of eaves and wood trim, with their wings wrapped around their bodies. Use caution; even during dormancy the queen wasp can sting.
