Paper Wasp

What is a wasp?

Do you live in Texas? Do you need wasp removal or paper wasp nest removal? Paper Wasps are one of the most common flying insects in Texas. It helps to know what you are dealing with when your home is invaded by stinging insects. It is always good to know how paper wasps are different from the species that may have nested on your property in the past.

What does a wasp look like?

The color of a Paper Wasp can be orange, reddish-brown, and even dark red. Some Paper Wasps even have yellow and red stripes on their smooth bodies, but are distinctly different from Yellow Jackets. Wasps have more of a sluggish type of flying than yellow jackets. They usually sit on their nests and hang out rather than look out for food, because they don’t build large nests and lay fewer eggs.

What does a wasp nest look like?

Paper Wasps, like many other insects, typically begin to appear during the spring season. The nest often looks like a round, upside-down paper honeycomb. It is often attached to a flat, horizontal surface. These nests tend to grow very quickly as the colony grows. Their nest can be anywhere where they can hang.

Wasp Nest

In the winter, they don’t have a nest so they hide in a warm place like a chimney. All the other wasps will die off in the fall. The queens will start a new colony in the spring and can grow a colony as large as 50,000 wasps in one summer.

Do wasps pollinate?

Bees usually aren’t aggressive as long as you don’t bother them. Wasps, however, are predators always on the hunt for their next meal, whether that be insects or the food at your barbecue. However, they do pollinate flowers since they feed on nectar.

Do wasps sting or bite?

Paper wasp stings are much more painful than a bee or a yellow jacket (although that may differ to each person). At a level 3 scale (out of 4 being the most painful), their stings will hurt and they can continue stinging. Run away and stay away until night time when they are asleep or calmer.
