How to protect yourself from wasps?
Perhaps the situation is familiar to everyone: a pleasant summer day, good company, a delicious barbecue is planned, and here, from nowhere, a wasp appears. And worse than this little annoying buzz can only be their swarm. It seems that they are everywhere: they fly into food, revolve around, persistently buzz. And if you strongly brush it off, they can also demonstrate their sharp sting in action. In this article we will discuss whether it is worth fearing wasps and how to make life in the country pleasant - without hand-to-hand war with wasps.
What are wasps dangerous?
In defense of wasps, we can say that, despite their importunity and a sharp sting, they partially help gardeners in the fight against pests. Wasps themselves feed on flower nectar, pollen. But their larvae need a more nutritious diet. Therefore, wasps prey on other insects and feed them to their descendants, thereby doing a favor to gardeners, as they destroy pests.
But this benefit will seem to you very doubtful, as soon as the wasps arrange a home on your site. The harm from such a neighborhood can be catastrophic both for the crop and for life.
So what wasps are dangerous?
Wasps devour the fruits of the garden
After pollination of plants, wasps begin to feast on the fruits themselves. And they choose the sweetest, juiciest, soft berries and fruits. If such a family settled on your site, it can damage a huge amount of raspberries, apples, plums. They especially love grapes and fragrant pears. In the harvest years on these trees there is no end to them.
The wasps have strong jaws that easily gnaw through the peel of the fruit and drink juice. After that, the fruits quickly deteriorate, brown spots form on them, and fruit rot kills your crop.
Wasps exterminate bees
Beekeepers suffer even greater harm from wasps. And this is why - wasps attract the sweet aroma of honey, they penetrate the hive and destroy the stock of bees, which makes their brood weaker. In the process of protecting their possessions, many honey bees also die.
But if in such a battle the bees have a chance to defend their hive, then they are equal to zero when attacked by larger and stronger representatives of the hornet family. Some species of wasps purposefully hunt for bees, eating their nectar, and giving the body to be eaten by larvae.
Os bites are dangerous
Another nuisance that wasps carry, and which we can feel most on ourselves, is their bites. Not only are they painful, so wasps can sting many times in a row. Their smooth sting has no notches like bees, and does not get stuck in the skin, but is ready for repeated attacks.
In addition, wasps react to the smell of their poison, and those that are close to the bite begin, following the example of the attacker, to attack a person.
Bites can cause redness of the skin, itching and burning, headache, increased heart rate. If the bite fell on the neck, it is urgent to call an ambulance, as it can cause choking. People who are allergic to wasp venom can die from anaphylactic shock.
