Dealing with paper wasps in Kuranda and Cairns
The above image is a paper wasp nest that Ulysses Pest Solutions was asked to remove from a residential property in Kuranda, North Queensland. The nest was in a palm tree and positioned in a manner that blocked entry into the building. Treatment and removal was provided.
Paper wasps make their nests out of weathered wood that they chew and mix it with saliva. Using their jaws, they form the shape of the nest, letting it dry to a stiff papery appearance. The cup-like cells that form the nest are grouped together as a comb.
There are a number of paper wasp species, each having their own unique nest style.
