Paper Wasp

Paper wasp are very common throughout the U.S. and the world. There are 22 different species that live in the U.S. alone. They commonly build their nest under eves and overhangs of homes and out buildings. Wasp come in a wide array of colors, the most common being red, yellow and black. They are often identified by their slim features and hairless bodies.

We get the most calls about paper wasp in the early spring when the queens that hibernated through the winter emerge to go and find a new nesting site. This is when many people will see dozens (if not more) wasp flying around the outside their homes...with one or two finding their way indoors.

There is little that can be done to prevent wasp from emerging in the spring and flying around, and they pose little to no threat to most people. It's only after these wasp have selected a nesting site that they can be sprayed with any common wasp and hornet spray.

Wasp are not aggressive like hornets and yellow jackets and rarely sting unless provoked although, their sting are very painful. Wasp eat nectar, but are known for their carnivore tastes for other insects such as caterpillars, beetle larva, and flies. While honey bees help to pollinate gardens wasp will help to keep gardens free of other insects that may harm your plants.
