Wasp Control Company Near Greenville SC

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.  

Some confuse them for bees, but they are actually distinguishable from each other. Wasps have pointed lower abdomens and narrow waists called a petiole. They are actually a sight to behold, as they come in different colors. They can be brown, metallic blue, red, or yellow.

Wasps are generally good for humans, as they eliminate other pests that cause more harm to the environment.

Wasps Can Also 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.

Treatment Of Wasp Stings

If you do not have any allergic reaction to the wasp sting, 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.

If you do have an allergic reaction, then immediately seek medical care.


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