Paper Wasp

Our remedy for paper wasp control

First, contact us. Paper wasp nests are usually easily controlled using a wasp treatment product, then knocking down the nest. Such treatments are best done at night, although trained professionals can safely treat them during the day.

On buildings where continuous paper wasp nest building occurs, treatment of the affected areas with a residual pest control product applied by a professional can deter most of the activity. Wasp control, along with dozens of other common household pests are all covered by our most popular residential service.

How to Identify a Paper Wasp

Appearance

Brownish with yellow markings; most species are about 1″ long.

Habitat

Paper wasps are easily identified by their nest—a round, upside-down paper cone that hangs from a horizontal surface in a protected location. Most paper wasp nests are located in exposed areas beneath soffits, in the corners of windows, under awnings, under porches and beneath decks. Paper wasps often enter attics through holes in the soffits, attic vent screens and underneath shingles.

Diet

Paper wasps are predators and feed on insects, spiders and caterpillars.
