Of all the pests that can invade a yard, wasps are some of the most annoying. Wasps are not known for transmitting diseases to humans in the same way as mosquitoes, but they still have a long stinger that can sting repeatedly. A wasp’s sting is extremely painful and can become red and swollen. Most people try to avoid these stings at all costs, and the best way to do that is to prevent wasps from invading your space in the first place. Removing and preventing wasps is never something that should be done on your own, but a Wenatchee wasp control company can help.
The Danger of Wasps
The biggest danger of having wasps in the yard is that they are extremely aggressive and territorial. Once a wasp has decided to make a home in someone’s yard, there is little the person can do about it, and other wasps in the colony will soon come to help out. Giant nests are created and there is often more than just one. Wasps heavily protect these nests, going on the attack and using their sharp stingers on anyone or anything that threatens their home.
This is particularly problematic for people that want to enjoy their yard and their space because wasps make that virtually impossible. When a person is allergic to wasp stings, as many people are, the consequences of an attack can be deadly. Even when a person is not allergic to wasp venom, these insects are very different from bees and they can sting again and again. Wasps also attack in packs and when so many wasps sting repeatedly, it can take a person several weeks or even months to fully recover.
