Read Online Bees & Wasps: Don't Get "Stung" in Court
July 2008
The soft drone of bees drifting lazily from flower to flower seems an innocuous part of the summer landscape. But when surprised or provoked, these usually beneficial insects can attack and turn deadly. Most bees and wasps live a solitary lifestyle, but many stinging species, including honeybees, bumblebees, paper wasps, yellow jackets and hornets live together in large colonies. Their painful sting is used to paralyze insect prey and protect the hive from attack. Generally, bees and wasps don’t bother humans unless provoked. In fact, according to a risk analysis by the Harvard School of Public Health, your chance of being stung by a bee is about 6 million to one. You’re twice as likely to be struck by lightening. Despite the low risk, stinging insects send 500,000 people to U.S. hospitals every year. Find out what you should do to prevent being in Court over a bee or wasp problem.
