Paper Wasps

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Paper Wasps Dangerous?

Paper Wasps can be dangerous if they feel threatened, as they have the ability to sting multiple times. Their stings can cause pain, swelling, and, in some cases, an allergic reaction in humans. However, Paper Wasps are generally not aggressive unless they perceive a threat to their nest.

Why do I have a Paper Wasp problem?

Paper Wasps are attracted to properties with suitable nesting sites, such as trees, shrubs, or the eaves and overhangs of buildings. They may also be drawn to areas with abundant food sources, such as gardens or fruit-bearing plants.

Where will I find Paper Wasps?

Paper Wasps can be found both indoors and outdoors. They often build their nests in sheltered locations, such as under eaves, in attics, or in trees and shrubs. They are most active during the warmer months and are more likely to be encountered during daylight hours.

How do I get rid of Paper Wasps?

To get rid of Paper Wasps, first identify the areas where they are nesting. Carefully remove the nests, wearing protective clothing and using a long-handled tool if necessary. Use insecticides, baits, or traps as needed. For large or difficult-to-reach nests, or if you have a known allergy to wasp stings, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Paper Wasps?

Preventing Paper Wasps involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing potential nesting sites, and regularly inspecting your home and yard for signs of activity. Keep vegetation trimmed away from your home's exterior and remove potential nesting sites such as old or unused outdoor furniture. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent wasps from entering your home.
