Many people have a fear of buzzing insects, including bees and wasps, and with good reason. Stings and bites can be painful, and for those who are allergic, stings may induce anaphylactic shock, which includes symptoms such as throat closure, problems breathing, and vomiting. Wasps, in particular, present a threat to humans because they can be quite aggressive. Hornets and yellow jackets belong to the Vespidae, or wasp family.
While wasps do provide a few quite valuable services to nature, acting as pollinators and engaging in biological pest control via parasitic reproduction, they represent a real danger to humans who may inadvertently aggravate them. Yellowjackets are known as scavengers, and they get very aggressive when trying to gather food. Have you had a picnic or BBQ and been repeatedly bothered by flying insects? Chances are, they were yellowjackets. If you have a wasp nest in your house, shed, or garage, contact the wasp removal experts at Twin Forks Pest Control® as quickly as possible.
How Dangerous are Wasps?
Just how dangerous are wasps? Towards the end of the summer, male wasps tend to be more prevalent, and more aggressive, as they’re now hunting for food and mates. While some homeowners might try to and remove a nest themselves, this is extremely ill-advisable as wasps have been known to attack in swarms and are known to defend their nests aggressively. In addition, unlike honeybees, which sting once and then perish, the same wasp can sting multiple people repeatedly.
