Wanted: Wasps

Wanted Harmful Insect: Hymenoptera

Attacks and Victims: The Wasp attacks plants and flowers. The Wasp uses its wings to fly to plant to plant. Plants with open flowers are at most risk.

Crime and Hideout: Wasps use their painful sting to protect themselves. They also build their nests high up so it is hard for predators to find them. Lastly, they have very hard exoskeletons.

Weapons: One way to protect yourself is to stay away from warm climates. Or just don't bother them. If stung by a wasp usually the pain will go away after a couple of days. If you are allergic to Wasps an epinephrine pen my be needed.
