Paper wasps are a type of social wasp that have an elongated body with a narrow waist and long legs. They can be red-orange, dark brown, or black in body color with yellow markings. Their nests are a single comb made from chewed wood, usually in the shape of an umbrella, and is not enclosed by an envelope. These nests are often found in attics, garages, trees, and under patios.
