Umm.. If you know its IV's, make sure that you have an EV set so that Vespiquen ends up with an ODD amount of hitpoints. Since Vespiquen takes 50% hp from stealth rock, if your hp is odd, you can turn it into 3 times (assuming you did not take other damage). Also recommend having a rapid spinner lol.
The EV spread is okay, but i suggest more HP, say about 160 or so (making sure you have an ODD amount of hp), rest going into def and Sdef, since you have Defend Order, you're overall defences will be better if you have higher hp.

I once saw the same Vespiquen moveset on smogon and it looks decent. On smogon they recommend putting EVs into HP first and then putting the remaining EVs into just one of the defences. Still, I dont think its a bad idea to max both defence and special defence as it is possible to have over 300 in both whilst maintaining an average HP stat.
I still think I'd be a bit scared up against steel types as they wall Vespiquen quite easily with their immunity to toxic and their resistance to the only attacking move on its moveset.
