Paper Wasps – Easy To Treat

Paper Wasps are among the easiest stinging insects to treat.  They are considerably more docile than other social stinging insects, such as Yellow Jackets or Hornets.  Paper Wasps around a house are typically found hanging from areas that give the nest some protection from above.

A direct application of almost any insecticide you have sitting in your garage will do the trick.  Simply spray the nest, and the wasps will then fall off the nest to the ground or fly away.  At this point, take a broom, knock off the nest, and step on it and throw it away.  You may get a new nest in the same area, but it won’t be the same wasps you just treated.
