That does not sound too scary…does it? We know that a “paper tiger” is harmless, but not so much a paper wasp. So, what is it anyway? They are unsightly and WILL sting, believe me! Their nests are found in overhangs and sheds throughout Chicagoland. They are so-named because these nests are made of a gray paper-like material.
Paper wasps are considered beneficial because they assist in pollination and they control pest insect populations by feeding them to their larvae. In spite of their ecological benefits, paper wasp nests should not be permitted to develop in or near your home. Stings from paper wasps are extremely painful and may produce serious reactions to people who are allergic to the venom.
