Paper Wasp Control (7-10-14)

These Paper wasps (Polistes sp.) are beneficial insects as it says in this NC State Publication. For instance, Paper wasps feed on caterpillars. Here is a control method using a jar to capture the wasps. Either leave the closed jar in a sunny place to kill the wasps or release the beneficial insects at night somewhere else. It is essential to keep all lights off during a release. Others use aerosols, but remember Paper wasps are beneficial to gardens! (7-10-14)
