Identifying Wasp Problems

There are several species of paper wasps. They generally range from ¼ inch to ½ inch in size. They may be of various colors and sizes. Their nest can be an identification feature as it usually hangs upside down with the brood cells exposed. Their nests are generally small with fewer than 100 wasps. They are not usually aggressive unless they are disturbed. 

Locating Wasp Infestations

Wasp infestations can make nests in openings and on exterior furniture and light fixtures, under deck railings, under the eaves of structures. The queens can over winter inside structures in the attic area and may become active during warm days in winter, commonly flying to windows. Wasp problems are attracted to lights but generally are not active at night.

Questions to Ask About Wasp Problems
