Understanding Wasp Control
Wasps are slender with a relatively thin waist and four wings. They are smooth and somewhat shiny with brightly colored "skin," generally having sharply contrasting black and yellow patterns. Females can sting multiple times. The males have wings but no stingers. Wasps are predators and feed on insects and spiders.
Wasps can be identified by their often bright color. Red, orange, yellow, or white on a black or dark background.
Wasp Insect Control
Wasps mostly sting when they are disturbed in or away from the wasp nest, when they are captured, crushed, or when they feel threatened. The wasp sting works just like their relatives the ants and bees; they are used to deliver venom and does not lay eggs. This makes female wasps the dangerous of the species.
Male wasps are absolutely harmless. A female wasp sting is able to deliver multiple doses of stings due to the fact that female wasps stings are not barbed making it easy to pierce human and animal skin repeatedly.
