WASPS

  • Most wasps live less than one year and some only live for a few months.
  • Wasps make up an enormously diverse array of insects, with some 30,000 identified species.
  • We are most familiar with those that are wrapped in bright warning colors—ones that buzz angrily about in groups and threaten us with painful stings.
  • Stinging insects like bees, hornets and wasps send more than 500,000 people to the emergency room each year.
  • Common home remedies for stings include coating the sting site with a meat tenderizer/water solution rinse, baking soda paste or even rubbing the site with an aluminum based deodorant!
  • Typically, wasps are most active during the day and usually return to their nests at dusk. These pests are often seen flying around during the second half of summer and early fall when the colonies search for food that will sustain their queens during the winter. 
  • Wasps are distinguishable from bees by their pointed lower abdomens and the narrow "waist," called a petiole, that separates the abdomen from the thorax.
  • All wasps build nests. Whereas bees secrete a waxy substance to construct their nests, wasps create their familiar papery abodes from wood fibers scraped with their hard mandibles and chewed into a pulp.

Prevention

  • Do not leave sweet drinks or meats out in the open.
  • Call a pest management professional if you find wasps around your house.
  • Plant fruit trees away from your home
