Infestation might be related to wasp nesting sites. When an area has a lot of hollow wood or wet concrete blocks it favors nest formation. The wasps will most certainly be lodged in those places. These pests are excellent pollinators of plants and are disappearing due to the elimination of their nesting sites by deforestation. Unless they are assaulted, they do not pose major problems. The composition of wasp venom is little known because there are not many studies about it.

Unlike bees, these arthropods do not leave the sting at the sting site. Because they are larger and physically scarier, they appear to be more poisonous than bees, which is not true.

Risks associated by wasps

The effects of the poison are similar to those of bees but less intense. These insects are usually not aggressive, they only attack if disturbed. The risk of accidents depends on the number of stings and the hypersensitivity of the injured individual.

The usual picture after the sting is intense pain and local erythema. There are also symptoms of edema (swelling) of variable intensity, referring to an abnormal accumulation of interstitial fluid consisting mainly of proteins and salts.

Symptoms of stings

Malaise, anxiety, sweating (sweating), itching, nausea, tremors, and vomiting. Urticaria (allergy to the skin) and bronchospasm (difficulty in breathing due to contraction of the bronchial muscles in the lungs) may occur in hypersensitized individuals.

Hypotension (low blood pressure), unconsciousness, and shock were also observed and may progress to death if no medication is performed correctly.

In animals, the systemic toxic reactions observed are vomiting, diarrhea, signs of shock and respiratory distress due to acute respiratory distress syndrome. Stings on the neck or oral mucosa can lead to death by asphyxiation.
