Watch Out for Wasps!

wasps in ogden

Generally, one wasp sting is not a big deal. Although it does hurt, the discomfort is livable and not life threatening. However, a full on attack by multiple wasps is where the danger lies. A wasp attack can result in multiple side effects, such as an allergic reaction.

Keep in mind this only happens when their territory is threatened so steer clear of their nest. This is when they become aggressive and strike out. Typically, if you leave wasps alone, they will leave you alone. In fact, they prefer not to interact with humans at all.

Did you know? Fun facts about wasps:

  • Wasps that feed on ferment can occasionally get drunk and pass out.
  • Some wasps, a species known as Tarantula wasps, can actually paralyze tarantulas and lay a single egg on the still living spider. Once the egg hatches the wasp larva has fresh food. The female yellow jacket wasp lays both fertilized and unfertilized eggs.
  • A wasp nest can include more than 10,000 wasps.
  • American can claim more than 4,000 different types of wasps.

What to do if a wasp stings you:
First of all, calm down! Everything is going to be okay. The protein venom injected by a wasp typically only causes swelling and slight pain for up to 24 hours. But, it can cause shortness of breath, hives and dizzy spells. You can eliminate these symptoms by applying extremely cold water or ice to the injection site, drink plenty of water and lie down and relax!

I have had Beeline spraying my house for several years now. Adam is the best to work with. Very knowledgeable, thorough, respectful of my home and friendly. If you have any bug issues, I would highly recommend calling.

Tanner is very efficient and pleasant to work with. He has treated our properties several times. We started using Beeline several years ago when we had an ant problem in our house. Since we started using Beeline, we don’t have that problem any longer.
