Polistes dominula (European paper wasp, PdomPennStateAug2009) (Pdom_r1.2)

About Polistes dominula

The European paper wasp (Polistes dominula) is one of the most common and well-known species of social wasps in the genus Polistes. Its diet is more diverse than those of most Polistes species—many genera of insects versus mainly caterpillars in other Polistes—giving it superior survivability compared to other wasp species during a shortage of resources.
