Tips on Wasps and Bees Prevention and Control

The basic bee or wasp is not for the most part viewed as hazardous when it is encountered by itself. It’s only when a hive or nest is available near your home that they represent a threat to anybody that may unintentionally aggravate them.

Wasps have a little head, with medium measured eyes and medium length antennas. The body is thin, with a tight waist. They have two sets of brown-tinted wings, with the forewings bigger. The abdomen has some yellow bands on black. Grown-up wasps generally feast upon nectar so they fertilize flowers also. The ovipositors in female wasps are modified into stingers. They will sting if aggravated.

Wasp hatch-lings are carnivorous. They eat different insects and bugs. The grown-up female gives food to them by catching prey or by laying the egg on or close to the food source. Female wasps invest the vast majority of their energy in discovering food and making nest for their young. Most wasp species are lone, yet some of them, for example, the paper wasps, form colonies.

It is strongly recommended that if you find a wasp nest in your property that you don’t try and get rid of it yourself. These insects can be unpredictable sometimes and in some extreme cases attacks have lead to death. However, you can take measures in preventing wasps from making a home in your property.
