The Yellow Jacket Wasp can be deadly …
The Yellow Jacket Wasp can attack as a group and may sting many times which is very painful and highly inflammatory particularly if stung around the throat or other glandular parts of the body.
Deaths are known to occur when a European Wasp stings a person after the wasp has been swallowed. The European Wasp may enter a soft drink or beer can (they like sugar) and if swallowed, it will bite and inject it’s venom inside the persons throat which will causing massive swelling of the glands and possible asphyxiation (suffocation). Paper Wasps can be very aggressive in hot weather and may cause severe pain from their sting. They are about 20 mm in length, and should be approached with caution. European Wasp nests are usually found in the ground, rockeries, tree stumps, wall cavities and roof voids. The paper wasp has brown and orange stripes and is usually found in a small papery nest usually hanging from a horizontal surface, such as, on walls under ceilings, window sills, awnings, shrubs and similar locations.
Most wasps have carnivorous larvae that feed on other insects and spiders. The adults provide food for them by capturing prey or by laying the egg on or near the food source, which might be an egg, larva or pupa of another insect. Wasp and hornet control is essential when they have large populations near your living areas. Why are they a pest? If you invade their space they will attack you and sting repeatedly, unlike bees which can only sting once. For controlling infestations, please do not try to control them yourself. Be sure to read all of it before you call a pest control company. Call in an expert with the right protection and equipment for the safest treatment of wasps.
Bees are a common problem during summer, often when the commercial honey bee seeks to establish a new hive inside a wall cavity of a residential or commercial premises.
A swarm of bees can be extremely aggressive and are known to attack a person in such large numbers as to cause death. Also they are known to carry a highly toxic venom which is injected directly into the victim’s bloodstream, thereby inflicting a hideous swelling of the skin, particularly of children and people with a fair complexion. In some cases, death may arise to people who are allergic to the bee venom or who are bitten by the swarm of bees in large numbers.
