As you spend time outdoors this summer, maybe grilling or mowing the lawn, there’s a good chance that you may find yourself in the company of wasps.
Many people confuse wasps and bees. And there are indeed some similarities – both bugs are yellow, both make a buzzing sound as they fly, and both will sting humans. However, wasps are generally a lot more aggressive than bees, and they can sting a person multiple times before they die.
Sometimes easy to locate a wasp’s nest. Some types of wasps build some pretty large structures that look like a football made out of mud. Other times, they build nests in dark places that are well out of sight. While wasps do provide some advantages to the ecosystem, such as killing some crop-destroying bugs, they can also be dangerous to your health if you or someone in your family has an allergic reaction to their stings.
