Though wasps share some similarities with bees, they are more different than they are alike. First of all, wasps lack the fuzzy appearance that is characteristic of many species of bees. Another difference between wasps and bees is that wasp’s legs usually hang down as they fly whereas the bees are hidden. The third difference is that wasps are much more aggressive and will sting much quicker than the gentle bee. Wasps can also sting multiple times, so rather than just a single sting, you may receive several. If you’ve ever been stung by a stinging insect, then you know how painful these stings can be! They can be very uncomfortable and cause redness and swelling. Wasp stings can be very serious, especially if the individual stung is allergic. Here are a few things one should watch out:
- Swelling of the tongue
- Difficulty breathing
If any of these symptoms occur, seek medical attention right away. Some individuals may go into anaphylactic shock from wasp stings.
To protect yourself from being stung, it’s important to be careful when trimming bushes and picking fruit from any fruit trees on your property as a nest could be tucked away in these areas out of sight. As we mentioned previously, wasps can be extremely aggressive and will sting any perceived threat. To avoid being stung by wasps when spending time outdoors, make sure to wear shoes, avoid wearing colorful clothing, and to not use sweet-smelling perfumes or lotions as these things can increase your risk of being stung.
The best way to avoid being stung is to rid your property of these unwanted guests. In order to do this, their nest must go. It can be very dangerous to remove wasps on your own.
