What do paper wasps look like?
Growing up to about an inch in length, paper wasps are often identified by their slender, elongated bodies that are less robust than other wasp species. Although color varies, these stinging insects often have a combination of black, brown, and yellow markings. Their transparent wings may have a smoky or brownish tint and their long legs dangle down as they fly.

In order to build their nests, paper wasps chew wood fibers and then mix them with their saliva to create a paper-like/pulpy substance. They then fashion this material into umbrella-shaped nests.
