SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION Paper wasps are about 3/4-1 inch long and are a dark brown black with yellow stripes. these pests spend most of their time gathering fibers from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva, and use to construct water-resistant nests made of gray or brown papery material. The adult female paper wasps are the only ones that are able to sting. All of these types of wasps are social and are very quick workers. If you happen to knock down their nest, they are sure to have it rebuilt in the same spot within a couple of days. As social wasps, their first instinct is to always protect their nest, especially from ants who love to steal their larvae. A paper wasps nest typically houses a couple hundred.

Signs of Infestation:

When it comes to a paper wasp infestation, there aren't many signs that will point to it. The most obvious sign is just the presence of these insects around. Many times you will find them in garages, attics, or wood piles. If you have a problem you will notice their nests that are made out of paper. You want to be sure not to get near it because these pests are very overprotective when it comes to their nest. Paper wasps have the ability to sting and they deliver a very painful sting. For those who are allergic to their venom, the pain will be even worse. We advise you to contact a professional to safely and quickly remove the wasps from your home.
