Among the many pests that have bothered the residents of Hickory is the wasp.

Wasps are small insects with some 30,000 species. It is an interesting insect, known to turn its prey into “zombies”. Many of these species are described as parasitoids, meaning the adult females deposit their eggs either on the host or inside the host.  Once the wasp injects its eggs into - let us say - a cockroach, the larvae would start feeding off the insides of the poor cockroach. The host would go about its daily activities for at least three days until the larvae suck the life out of it.  

Wasps, If Provoked, Can Be Deadly To Humans

Of the many thousands of wasp species, around five are classified as pests. Wasps have venom, and they are generous in giving them out to humans who they think deserve their wrath. If they feel threatened by you, they will attack you. Their venom can cause allergic or hypersensitive reactions to some people. They can also be quite bothersome during summer outings and picnics with just their presence alone.

Wasps often like sugary foods. When nested near a house or a building, they often come into contact with humans while searching for food.  A human’s natural reaction would be to become aggressive, which then threatens the wasps. That is when they sting. That is when wasps pose danger.

Wasps stings are very painful.  To some people, it can be fatal.

Treatment Of Wasp Stings

If you have an allergic reaction to wasp stings, then immediately seek medical care.

If you do not have any allergic reaction, you can treat it yourself. Wash the sting with soap and water, apply an ice pack for 5 to 10 minutes, and then try to elevate the affected area.


Prevent wasps from entering your homes. Make sure your windows and doors are closed, or at least add a screen so the wasps cannot enter. Make sure your trash bins are also closed as these are possible food sources for them.

Wasps are good for the ecosystem, but once they pose a serious threat to you and your family, it is time to get the professionals to help. If you are in Hickory, you can call Go-Forth Home Services Company. They have highly trained, highly skilled professionals who can get the job done.
