Bees and wasps belong to the same family Hymenoptera. Bees are hairy whereas wasps are shiny and smooth. They also differ in their lifestyle and habits. But, when it comes to the dangerous effects they cause, they are no less than each other. Both of them are equally dangerous. Insects sting you only when they feel they are threatened. Bees are socially loved by people but wasps are not liked generally as they contribute nothing to ecology. Bees help in pollination. In this blog, you can read about Bees And Wasps, Their Buzz And Harm They Cause. These are words of local pest control experts. Read below and be safe from Bees And Wasps.
The harmful buzzing sound of bees and wasps
Wasps and bees produce a buzzing sound when they pollinate. Their buzzing is the sound produced by the wingbeats. The older the bees, the lesser is the sound. Their buzzing sound in your garden or landscape can be a sign of their invasion of your property. You have to be very alert if you have any such nests of either of them in your garden. If anybody comes in their flight paths or tries to disturb their nests, they sting badly without thinking as they get threatened. There are several methods to control or remove the nests but the best method is to avoid them and save the expense of getting them removed.
The harm caused by bees and wasps
Bees and wasps do not like the people disturbing them in their work coming in between their paths. In defence, they start attacking the ones aggressively who try to create hurdles in their path. A honey bee has a barbed stinger that remains stuck in the victim’s body and may lead to anaphylactic shock. About 3% of people stung by bees and wasps face an allergic reaction to the sting, and up to 0.8% of bee sting victims experience a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction known as Anaphylaxis. So, now you must be aware of what these small pesky bugs can do to you inadvertently.
Preventions from stings of bees and wasps
- Bees and wasps are always attracted to nectar so you should avoid wearing floral prints and fruity smells of perfumes.
- Avoid eating outdoors or leaving leftovers like sweet drinks and fruit juices which make these insects humming around.
- When they are busy foraging on flowers that means they are busy collecting food for themselves and their colony members, don’t dare to disturb them as they also won’t care about you at that time. Ignorance is the key at that time.
- Wear close-toed shoes if you want to walk in the area where bees and wasps have their nests to avoid getting stung by them.
Still, if you fall prey to their sting after following all such precautions, then ideally leave that place and come inside the house. Try to remove the stinger softly with a dull object and then apply an ice pack to target inflammation. If you are relieved then it’s ok or else you can go to the chemist to buy an over-the-counter pain reliever. You can check our blog titled Here is Quick and Effective Guide to Pest Control.
