Their painful stings make wasps an insect to be treated with respect. While only female wasps sting, their straight stingers allow these stinging insects to sting repeatedly. Wasp stings are painful and may cause severe redness and swelling, as well as life-threatening allergic reactions. Even people who are not allergic to their sting can suffer life-threatening respiratory distress if swarmed and stung multiple times by angry wasps.
Wasps may build their hives in trees, between evergreen boughs, behind signs and shutters, under boards and other yard debris and even underground in abandoned animal burrows. The vibrations created by a lawn mower are enough to send any insects shooting out of an underground nest where they can attack home owners, children and pets. A hive behind a wall sign can pose a stinging risk to business employees or retail customers.
