Order Hymenoptera

Appearance: Wasps have 2 pairs of wings attached to the chest (thorax). The size of the wasp varies from 2 to 12 cm, and has a variety of colors, from black to green and metallic blue, and a combination of yellow and black.

Behavior: Wasps can be divided into colonies and solitary wasps. The colony wasp lives socializing and has many members of the colony. Solitary wasps live alone, they lay eggs and leave them to hatch themselves. Some wasps become parasites and predators for other insects.

Sign of Infestation: The sign of wasp infestation depends on the type, in general workers were found and their nests are found.

Diseases/Contamination: Wasps can sting when threatened, but certain types of aggressively attack. Unlike bees, wasps can sting many times, and the toxins from wasps can have an inflammatory effect, dizziness, nausea, fever and are very dangerous for people with allergies.

Prevention: Keep the area clean and reduce food sources and wasp access.

Reproduction: The queen lays eggs without fertilization will produce a male wasp. The male wasp will fertilize the queen and produce a female wasp which eventually becomes a worker wasp. Worker wasp makes a nest, and feeds larvae produced by the queen.
