Protecting your family from predators
Wasps are fierce and can be aggressive. These traits serve a useful purpose when they are hunting their prey. Farmers love wasps since they eat many of the insects that are harmful to crops. In addition to insects, wasps also love fruit, nectar, tree sap and anything sugary, gooey or meaty you might be serving at your backyard barbeque. Combining their aggression and determination with encounters with those you love is not a good combination. Keeping these wasps away from your family and yard is imperative especially since, unlike bees, wasps can repeatedly sting when provoked.
