Paper Wasps


  • Sometimes called umbrella wasps due to the shape of their hives
  • Paper wasps recognize each other's faces in a manner that is comparable to humans and chimps
  • The nests are typically made from dead wood mixed with saliva to create a paper like substance

Paper wasps are a family of wasps that create nests out of paper, and are distinct from yellow jackets and hornets which also share this trait. The nest of true paper wasps are characterized by open combs that the colony uses for brood rearing. Paper wasps are generally much less aggressive than yellow jackets and hornets and are considered beneficial by many gardeners. However they are territorial and their stings are very painful. If you find these wasps near or in your home, please call a pest control professional.

I was not happy with old pest control provider. I felt like they were charging me a lot and I was not seeing results. I called Horizons Professional Pest Control and within 2 months of monthly services, my pest issues were resolved and I saved money too!
