Wasp Nest Information
A wasp is a pest of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither an ant nor a bee. This means that wasps related with bees and ants and that all three groups are from a common ancestor.The most usually known wasps such as yellow jackets and hornets are in the family Vespidae and are eusocial, living collectively in a nest with an egg-laying queen and workers.
Social wasps are supposed pests when they become extremely familiar, or nest close to homes. People are stung in late summer when wasp hives stop breeding new workers.The existing workers search for sweet foods and are more likely to come into touch with humans; if people then reply aggressively, the wasps bite.
Wasp nests made in or near homes, such as in roof spaces, can present a danger as the wasps may hurt if people come close to them. Stings are usually painful rather than dangerous, but in rare cases people may suffer life-threatening anaphylactic shock.Wasp species classified as social or solitary. As their name suggests, social wasps live in communities, which may number in the thousands. Within these communities, female workers perform all jobs within the nest. Unlike them, Solitary wasps live solely and, therefore, do not have a colony. They also lay eggs, but their eggs are left isolated to hatch.
Some wasps are pillaging while others are parasitic. Predatory wasps kill and eat other insects as well as other animals that they often feed to their caterpillars. Parasitic wasps, unlike other wasps, lay their eggs in the bodies of living beings like caterpillars or spiders. The larvae feed on the living host. Wasps can support in the management of other pests, especially in farming as biological control agents. Many wasps also feed on the nectar of flowers and, hence, play role as pollinators.
Wasp bites signs and symptoms:
Wasp stings can cause significant reactions, ranging from localized pain and swelling to serious and even potentially fatal conditions.
Health Concerns From Wasp:
All female stinging wasps can defend themselves and their nests by using their ovipositor to inject venom. Males do not have a stinger. No species will attack a human except in defense. If the colonies of some yellow-jacket and hornet species are disturbed, they may respond by releasing more than 100 defending wasps, each capable of delivering several stings. The nests of these species should be left alone or removed professionally if they are considered a nuisance. Wasp venom contains factors that release histamine, which dissolves red blood cells. Most people can survive many stings, responding with only temporary pain and swelling, but to hyperallergic individuals-about 1 percent of the population-a wasp sting can be fatal. If you are stung by a wasp, seek medical attention. If your pet is stung, find a nearby animal hospital.
