Wasp is a flying insect just like bees. These colonial insects hail from the same ancestors as the bees and ants. Wasps are found in the spring season because the queen wasp hibernates in winter. However tiny they may be, they have a painful sting and a flying speed of 40 km/hr. While stinging, they produce a toxic secretion called histamine in the human body that can even be life-threatening. These insects live in colonies and can be a huge problem if they set up their nests near your house. Apart from inflicting a painful sting, they can even sting multiple times. If a wasp builds nests in the cavities of your house then it can even eat at your plaster. But you need not worry as the Eco-friendly Pest Control Perth WA is at your assistance if you are miffed by wasp infestation.

Wasps are basically classified into two species- solitary and social. As is implied in the name itself, solitary wasps live alone and have no bonding with other wasps. Contradictory to this, social wasps live in colonies that might even extend up to a thousand in number. In these colonies, the female wasps perform all the duties within their nests.

It’s tricky to recognize wasps and be able to pick them out from bees. Wasps are light yellow and shining black in color. Unlike bees, they don’t have distinct hairs. They are larger, slicker and slender and boast a narrow waste that connects both the segments.
Because they live in colonies it is only justified that they even feed in packs. They feed on fresh as well as rotting fruits that are sweet, nectar and meat as well. They are drawn towards offal and carrion. As wasps are scavengers, they also collect caterpillars for larvae.
