Paper wasps (1/4” – 1”) are abundant in the Northwest and can be found in the eaves and overhangs of almost any home in the Portland, OR; Vancouver, WA and Camas metro area. Paper wasps may become active as early as March and sometimes remain active all the way into November. When reproducing females emerge in the spring from overwintering, they tend to follow the same flight patterns reestablishing colonies in roughly the same location as the year before. This is why it’s not uncommon to see 50+ wasp nests in the eaves of a home that hasn’t been professionally treated in years.
How Do I Get Rid Of Wasps?
Treatment is a good option as soon as you begin to see wasps building on the home, fence, playset, etc. Wasps can be aggressive and the location of the nest isn’t always obvious. Apart from being potentially dangerous, paper wasps can be a real challenge for homeowners to treat themselves because they sometimes build nests in inaccessible areas.
