Grass Carrying Wasps

I have noticed some wasps that carry pieces of dried grass are living in the space between the trim around the door and the siding of the house. Is this bad for the house? Can it cause any damage? I've also seen them go into the opening of the chimes I have hanging. What kind of wasps are these, and do they/can they sting?

RE: Grass Carrying Wasps

All wasps can and will sting. Most will only sting if you bother them.

YOu probably have some sort of "leaf cutter" wasp or bee making nests with plant material. Caulk the trim around ALL windows and doors ... the wasp nests are not a problem, but uncaulked cracks let water in and heat out.
