Paper Wasp Removal

Paper Wasp

(Polistes Spp.)

Paper wasps (Polistes spp.) are one of the most common wasp species. They build simple paper nests consisting of only one tier or layer of cells. The cells generally open downward and are not covered. The layer of cells is referred to as a comb. Nests are usually found suspended beneath horizontal surfaces of structures. The also will enter gaps in roof lines, holes in siding, gable vents, roof vents, basketball hoops, light fixtures and anywhere that is protected from the elements. Polistes nests are rather small, usually no larger than 6 to 8 inches in diameter and seldom have more than 100-200 workers in a nest.
