Wasp Trivia

Never squash a wasp that has stung you. Upon being crushed, it will release a chemical that becomes airborne; this signals guard wasps to come and sting whatever gets in their way.


AND/OR?

Never thoughtlessly grab a dead wasp at the sliding glass window - it still has a stinger!!!

We have had our own wasp run-ins lately.....and I mean of the insect variety.

I accidently knocked a wasp nests out of one of our trees growing up. Being that I am highly alergic to bee stings, lets just say it was not one of the most plesent experiences in my life. I ended up in the hospitol with over 50 stings.

Good times!
