In the Pine Grove sub in Eagle, Idaho I was about to rest my hand and body up against the siding while speaking with a customer. Camouflaged in the rock, I saw this little gem:
Insects and spiders have survived over the years by being very adaptable, and this paper wasp nest shows how they can adapt to an urban environment! Remember to be aware of paper wasp nest around your house and property, as they defend their nests aggressively. Their stings are painful and can cause an allergic reaction.
A trained eye is often times the best way to detect these nests, and when our technicians put on their pest-control x-ray glasses, we can find them more times than not!
