Wasps and hornets belong to a family of social insects, belonging to the order Hymenoptera. They can be a problem for human health, especially in people allergic to their stings, to whom the venom can cause an anaphylactic shock.
Wasps and hornets control is carried out through the use of innovative eco-friendly chemical products able to provide reliable results even on bees and other pests.
For proper disinfestation, the hive or nest must be found and destroyed.
The main difference that distinguishes the nest of Wasp from that of Bee is the color. Due to lack of production of wax, the nest of Wasp’s colour is darker, similar to the color of cardboard.
The nests of wasps may vary in size. However they can contain more than 20,000 units. Wasps are much more aggressive than bees. They defend their hive even at the risk of their own lives. They attack the invader and thanks to the secreting poison when stinging, they are able to break it down in a very short time.
These features make it increasingly necessary to intervene with a pest control operation.
The Hornet, for example, because of its larger size possesses a much greater quantity of poison .
When you are near a hive of wasps you need to be extremely careful. The colony of wasps is divided hierarchically into workers, the fertile males and the queen.
The fertilized females are protected and hidden in warm places during the winter season. In this way, they are able restore the colony when the spring season comes.
The larvae of wasps and bees must be constantly fed with sugars and proteins drawn primarily from flowers and fruits and subsequently by other substances rich in glucose.
The following are the most common species of Bees and Wasps:
- Solitary Bee
- Bee melifera
- Common Wasp
- Social Wasp
- Oriental Wasp
- Polistes Gallicus Wasp
- Crabro Wasp (Hornet)
