PEST CONTROL: Paper wasps
Paper wasps use chewed plant fibers from dead wood and plant stems to make their nests. Once the material is mixed with saliva, they transform into a waterproof papery material. These wasps can also be called umbrella wasps because of the distinctive design of their nests.
Paper wasps also secrete a chemical which repels ants, which they use at the base of their nests to protect their eggs from these predators.

Paper wasps are semi-social pests that live in small colonies. They feed from nectar, pollen, and insects including caterpillars, flies, and beetle larvae. From September – November months, inseminated females may come indoors for shelter.
They are searching for a place to spend the winter. Homes with cathedral or high ceilings are most prevalent for an infestation.
Brownish with yellow markings; a few species with reddish markings
long legs, segmented, about 5/8″ to 3/4″
PAPER WASP HABITAT
Paper wasps hang their nests from sheltered areas. Shrubs or hedges with twigs and branches of trees and common locations.
The exterior of structures are also prevalent locations such as porch ceilings, window and doorframes, soffits, eaves, and attic rafters. Usually higher areas are preferred.
PEST THREAT LEVEL
While not an aggressive species by nature, paper wasps will sting if they are disturbed or their nest is threatened.
Wasp stings are painful and can cause the same risk of allergic reaction as other insect stings.
