Paper wasps get their common name from the paper-like material out of
which they make their nests. Paper wasps are sometimes called umbrella
wasps, after the shape of their distinctive nests. Various species are
found throughout the United States.
Prevention and ControlBefore trimming shrubs or hedges, or picking fruit, check the plant for paper wasp nests. If you suspect you have a paper wasp infestation or find a nest on your home or property, contact Drum Pest Control. Do not attempt to treat a nest on your own, as there is a high probability you will get stung.
Drum Pest Control offers wasp prevention plans in the early spring to prevent wasps from building nests on your home.
