(Polistes spp. and Mischocyttarus flavitarsis)
Umbrella wasps are also commonly referred to as paper wasps. These wasps have been named umbrella wasps because their nests are the shape of an inverted umbrella. They usually have small nests and are usually inhabited by about 250 wasps. Unlike many other wasps and yellow jackets, Umbrella wasps do not have a worker caste. All female wasps are capable of becoming the queen.
Umbrella wasp nests do not have a paper envelope around them and are only a single comb. Umbrella wasps usually hang their nests in eaves, attics, and sheds. Knocking down the nest is a waste of time because the wasps will rebuild it. Therefore, the wasps themselves must be destroyed.
A good preventative pest control program will help in reducing these pests; Environmental Pest control offers exceptional seasonal treatments in reducing these problems.
