Paper Wasps

Identification

  • 5/8-¾” long

  • Sleek appearance

  • Color varies from red with blackish wings to brown and yellow striped (although more combinations exist)

Environment

  • Nest resembles an umbrella and is attached by a small stem to a surface

  • Nests are built on practically any horizontal surface that can be found

Threats

  • Most likely to sting if the nest is disturbed (usually in hidden locations, so happens frequently)

  • Nests may be highly visible and unsightly

  • Stings may be life threatening to sensitive individuals

Treatment

  • Adults must be killed to prevent the nest from being rebuilt; this should be done in the early morning or late at night

  • Nests must be knocked down to discourage rebuilding and to prevent wasps from overwintering

  • Paper wasps are beneficial organisms and are therefore only controlled when they pose an immediate threat
