Being stung by a wasp (yellow jacket), hornet or bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. However, it is possible to reduce these risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors and ensuring that wasp nests or bee hives are properly managed.
Treating a wasp nest is often the most efficient way to control a problem and reduce the threat of stings.

Wasps can also be confused with bees, in particular Honey Bees - however these vary in color from golden brown to almost black and are furrier than wasps.
Although known for their role in pollination and producing honey, bees can become a threat to homeowners when they build their hives near or inside homes.
Some types of bees seldom sting, such as carpenter bees, while more aggressive species such as, Africanized honey bees, will sting humans in large numbers.
Bee stings have the potential for an allergic reaction, resulting in anaphylactic shock.

Wasps have the potential to attack in large numbers if their nest is disturbed. Only female wasps have a sting which they can use repeatedly, if they feel under threat. In most cases a wasp sting causes no long term harm, but it can be life threatening if you are allergic to stings.
Wasps can build nests outdoors under eaves or, if they can gain access, they can find sheltered areas inside your home, such as wall cavities, roof spaces and attics. Yellow jackets frequently construct their nests below ground, making it difficult to treat.
It is best to treat a nest earlier in the year before numbers increase and the wasps become more aggressive, increasing the threat of stings during treatment.
