Latin Name:


Paper wasps are about 1.9 to 3.2 cm in length, with narrow bodies commonly brownish in color and have yellow to reddish markings. Paper Wasps are not typically aggressive UNLESS they feel threatened and feel the need to protect the nest.



Paper wasp nests are made with their saliva and combined with plant material and really do look as if to be made from paper. Their nests include numerous compartments, within which wasps lay their eggs and raise their young. They love to build their nests in sheltered areas, such as door frames, window sills, around outdoor light fixtures and the eaves of houses.
