La poliste est plus élancée que la guêpe commune, elle s'en distingue surtout par ses antennes orangées. Elle a un aiguillon venimeux dont elle se sert rarement contre les intrus car elle n'est pas agressive. C'est le mâle qui a les yeux verts.
The paper wasp is more slender than the common wasp, it is especially remarkable in its orange antennas. She has a venomous sting which she rarely used against intruders because it is not aggressive. It is the male who has green eyes.
