Wasp Pest Control

Common to Southern California is the wasp, with multiple species found in the region. To protect your home or business, you should learn all of the different techniques available for identification and wasp pest control.


There are three species of wasps commonly found in Southern California, including the paper wasp, mud dauber, and yellowjacket. The first step in the treatment process is identifying what wasp species you are currently dealing with at your home or office.

Paper Wasps

Often mistaken for a yellow jacket, the paper wasp is black and yellow and has a slim body. This species of wasps is unique because they build nests that look like umbrellas on ceilings of structures or overhangs that aren’t frequently in use.

Mud Daubers

Growing between a half-inch to a full inch in size is the mud dauber wasp. Also, with a slender body, these wasps are most frequently black with some hints of metallic blue. The mud dauber’s nests are made from mud and shaped like thin pipes.


There are two species of yellowjackets common in Southern California; the German yellowjacket and the western yellowjacket.
