Wasps Inside Your Attic!

Article Summary: 

A technician from Gates Wildlife found a large, dormant Paper Wasp Nest inside a customer's attic. Paper Wasps build nests under overhangs and gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems to construct water-resistant nests. Their nests generally do not cause any structural damage to buildings. Paper wasps do not pose a danger unless the nest is disturbed, but they are aggressive and will defend their nest. The best time to remove a Paper Wasp Nest is during the winter. They are predators of residential and agricultural pests, making them valuable near gardens.
