How are Wasps different than Bees? Well, when it comes to aggressiveness, and level of nuisance, the wasp wins.
Why? Here are just a few reasons:
- While bees only sting once, wasps can sting you again and again. That’s bad news if you have a a wasp nest in or near your home.
- While bees sometimes attack when they feel threatened, Wasps are naturally more aggressive predators and attack much more often
- Wasps will actually attack Bee Hives and go after Bee Honey as a source of protein
- In many cases, A Wasp stings can be more painful, especially if you’re stung by a Pepsis Wasp
Autumn tends to be the perfect time to get rid of wasp colonies as when the weather turns cooler, the queens and males mate and the new fertilized queen over winters in attics, woodpiles or other protected areas. While it may seem like you are no longer being pestered by the flying menaces, they are actually just waiting to start the nesting cycle all over again in the spring so call in a pest control professional to take care of the problem now.
