In Long Island New York
Paper wasps construct familiar, open-celled paper nests we often see suspended from gutters or porch ceilings. Paper wasps serve an important ecological purpose, they collect caterpillars, beetle larvae, and other insect to feed their young.
Every year the Paper Wasp Queen builds a new nest by chewing wood fibers (Your wooden personal items) into a pulp. Once she raises her first generation of workers, these offspring will assume the role of construction workers, expanding the nest to meet the needs of the growing colony.
During a Long Island New York summer a paper wasp nest can become quite large, reaching a width of 6-8 inches. In fall, freezing temperatures will kill all but the queen, who seeks shelter and hibernates for the winter. The nest degrades over winter and is rarely reused the next year.
Paper wasps may sting in defense of their nest, or when threatened. Unlike honeybees, which have barbed stings and can only sting once, paper wasps can sting multiple times. A paper wasp can call other colony members using alarm pheromones, chemical messages that tell other wasps to help defend the nest from a threat. Stay calm and contact Long Island Bee Removal to elimate the threat of Paper Wasps and their nasty stings.
