Pests We Treat Photo Album: Paper Wasps Starting to Build Their Nest in Forked River, NJ
It's only March, but paper wasps are out and getting ready to build their nests.
The Window Frame
As you can see, the paper wasps were building their nests right in the frame of the window.
What Are Paper Wasps
Paper wasps received their name from the paper-like material out of which they make their nests. They are semi-social stinging insects that usually have brown bodies with yellow or reddish markings. A sting from a paper wasp can be extremely painful and can cause allergic reactions in some people.
Exterminating the Paper Wasps
We grabbed our extendable pole, attached an aerosol product to it, and liberally treated the nest. This product rapidly neutralizes the paper wasps.
Prevents Them from Returning
Moments later, we removed the nest, disposed of it, and applied a residual application to the area to prevent the paper wasps from returning and rebuilding their nest.
