How to Identify and Remove Paper Wasps

paper wasps orlando

What are Paper Wasps?

These wasps get their name simply because the nests they build are out of paper, they’re constructed out of a combination of plant material and saliva that creates an exposed comb. Paper Wasps belong to the genus Polistes and eat wood and vegetation to build their nests. A nest can typically hold a few dozen wasps including a queen but can always grow if left untreated. Each varies in shape and size but all contain a single queen that sustains the hive. A wasp infestation cannot be completely removed without the removal of the queen.

Where Will I Find a Paper Wasp Nest?

  • window corners
  • attics and crawl spaces
  • porch ceilings
  • beneath eaves and awnings
  • twigs and branches

Paper Wasp Removal

Paper Wasps become very aggressive when their nest is at risk. These wasps only attack as a defense mechanism which makes DIY removal very dangerous. Removal should be done by a professional to avoid the risk of stinging. Not only are their stings painful but can cause itching, swelling, and run the risk of infection. A Paper Wasp sting is especially threatening to those who could have an allergic reaction to their venom.
