Paper Wasp


***Name***

Paper Wasp

Size
13-25mm

Identification
Large social wasps with long legs, usually brown, yellow markings typically less extensive than yellow jackets and hornets.



Food

Take nectar and juice from ripe fruit. Predatory on other insects (predominantly caterpillars) to feed larvae.

Life Cycle

In spring they build a nest and the colony builds up over the summer. At first, only workers are produced. Mature colonies have up to 30 adults. A young queen is the sole survivor of the colony.

Not as aggressive as Hornets, Yellowjackets. May be considered beneficial to gardeners because of predation on herbivorous insects.
