Wasp infestations can be fairly common in residential areas. If you notice a few wasps flying near your home, that can be an indication that a nest is located nearby and you should inspect your home to determine its location and eliminate it. Wasps’ nests are usually small in size but some can grow to be a very large home to an enormous population of wasps. Nests can be found both on and near homes. Generally, wasps prefer to nest in a location that provides shelter from the elements, such as under siding, in corners of homes, in gutters or in trees.
