Tis the season for Paper Wasps

How to identify a paper wasp?

Paper wasps are slender in shape with a narrow waist. Typically identified with black wings that fold along the body when at rest. Colors vary between brown with yellow markings to over all reddish brown. The nest cells are open and uncovered and can be found under home eaves, attached to structures and even on plants. A paper wasp will build the nest from wood fibers that they collect from wood posts and occasionally will take fiber from live plants. The wasp nest may be a neutral gray to brown color and houses their eggs and food ration. Most nest will be hanging from a single filament in a downward position. You will see colony members resting at night on the nest as they forage during the day.
