The Sun is out…and so are the wasps
Summer has almost hit us…be wary of the wasps that are bound to terrorise you.
That can only mean one thing, a couple of months of being terrorised by wasps whilst going about your business.
With a wasp sting being potentially fatal to some due to the venom that is released through the stinger, here at Confirm A Kill, we recommend you stay vigilant to make sure a wasp sting isn’t ruining your sunbathing, gardening or BBQ time. If you’re interested, here’s a few facts about the famously vicious wasps:
- The stinger of a wasp is only on females – it’s actually modified egg laying organs that are part of their bodies.
- The sting of a wasp contains a chemical called pheromone – when released into the air, this causes other wasps to get aggressive and violent.
- Wasps are civilised – in the broad sense of the word, wasps form communities in which they have a hierarchy: queens, males and workers.
These facts may make wasps appear as if they are somewhat harmless individuals, however, if you see a lot of them around, it could be the home of a wasp colony. These are considerably dangerous and should only be removed or disturbed by trained professionals.
Wasp stings to some can just be an irritation of the skin, however to a few people, the venom within the sting can cause anaphylactic shock, which potentially can be fatal to those with serious allergies to the venom.
