Hornets & Wasps

Cool looking houses – nasty sting!


Most paper wasp nests are located in exposed areas beneath soffits, in the corners of windows, under awnings, under porches and beneath decks. These wasps, however, will also nest within voids and other protected sites, such as gas grills, electric outlet boxes, hose reels, attics and crawl spaces. They often enter attics through holes in the soffits, attic vent screens and underneath shingles.


Paper wasp nests are usually easily controlled using a wasp treatment product, and then knocking down the nest. Such treatments are best done at night, although professionals can safely treat them during the day. On buildings where continuous paper wasp nest building occurs, treatment of the affected areas with a residual pest control product applied by a professional can deter most of the activity.
