What is a paper wasp and how does it affect Chicagoland? Paper wasps get their commonly known name from the paper-like material out of which they make their nests. They are sometimes called umbrella wasps, after the shape of their distinctive nests. Whatever you call them you probably need to eliminate them from your environment.
Paper wasps are a group of several species of the vespid wasp. They are stinging insects and are semi-social creatures, as they typically live in small colonies. Some of the groups related to paper wasps include yellow jackets and hornets, potter and mason wasps, spider wasps and long-waisted paper wasps.
