Wasps

WASP

Wasps are one of the most widespread and numerous pests on the planet. At least 200,000 varieties of this insect have been documented and all have defensive stingers. Here is some information about wasps and their characterisation.

Description of wasps

As we pointed out above, this is one of the species with the greatest number of existing varieties. It is a hymenopteran, which makes it a close cousin of bees and ants. Its name comes from the type of wings that identify it, which look like translucent blades. An interesting fact is that its stinger arose as an evolutionary adaptation for defence. But originally it was the conduit for reproductive disposition. They have also developed venoms that are delivered through this organ.

They are usually solitary in most varieties, but we are likely to recognise the social ones more quickly. These are called eusocial, capable of organising themselves to a degree that is effective and decisive for their survival. They divide their work through specific castes or types with assignments. These are related to their reproductive structure and disposition. The majority belong to the worker group, which possesses the defensive sting, while the reproductive ones do not.

In order to maintain a balance in the number of individuals per caste, nature has developed a haplodiploid reproduction system. According to this system, reproductive wasps are the product of fertilised eggs and workers are not. In the case of solitary wasps, reproduction is asexual and independent of others of their species.

Preferred habitats of wasps

As their range of varieties is remarkable, we cannot speak of a specific habitat. Eusocial wasps build complex hives with wax and locate themselves in spaces close to their food source. Some prefer sites occupied by humans because it offers them specific protection thanks to particularly accessible surfaces. Others may occupy deep holes or tubular elements that they colonise.

Damage that wasps can cause

This is an interesting and controversial issue because not all varieties can be considered as pests. In fact, some are beneficial because they parasitise species that are harmful to human crops. This is the case of those that feed on spiders and plant mites. Some even lay their eggs in the bodies of their hosts so that they can feed on them.

However, there are some varieties that feed on beneficial insects, and this is the first damage to be considered. The sting of the wasp is often painful. They inoculate venom and the venom can be painful as well as lasting for a long time.

In this sense, eusocial wasps are more dangerous, because although their venom is not potent, the number of stings is. They also cause headaches, vomiting, oedema, urticaria, and in some cases can be fatal. The great variety that characterises them makes it very difficult to determine the control that can be applied. However, the ideal is to keep them away by preventing them from consolidating their nests.

Some pests are more potentially dangerous than others; this is the case with wasps. Having a wasp nest near your home increases the risk of being stung. Unlike bees, wasps tend to be more aggressive towards humans, making a group attack more likely. If you are allergic to wasp stings, then your health is at risk; if you are not, wasp stings will, at the very least, be painful.

While our help arrives, remember to put these tips into practice if you don’t want to be stung by a wasp:

  • Avoid panicking
  • Do not try to scare them away
  • Avoid using sweet scents, they attract them.
  • Use neutral and dark colours, brighter colours tend to attract their attention.
  • Avoid eating or drinking near the wasp’s nest. Drinks tend to attract them because of the sweet smell; the same goes for food.
  • Maintain good hygiene. Wasps can detect sources of odour or food that are attractive and may approach you.

Leave wasp control to the experts, do not use substances or methods that may put your health at risk.
