The most common wasps in North America are both red and yellow paper wasps. They are social wasps but do not build a large nest; it is up to the size of a softball. Their nest is an open-faced nest with the cells hanging downward. They live under decks, overhangs, and attics. Wasps can get trapped inside your home, looking for a way to get out in the spring or a place to overwinter in the fall. Wasps can find ways in through chimneys, vents, and construction gaps in the duct work. Southeast Bee Removal does not deal with wasp nests.
