Wasps are a stinging insect that can be dealt with by your Tulsa exterminator. Wasps are a very important part of our ecosystem and help in the massive work of cross pollinating plants and trees. But if they create a nest in places too close to us they can be a problem. This stinging insect will sting you and your love ones if you get too close to them. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at wasps, their life cycle and what are you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect your self and your loved ones from these insects.


Wasps use their stinger for two purposes. They will protect themselves and their nests, and they use it to hunt for small spiders and grubs that they will feed their young. A female wasp, when she is impregnated, will start to build her nest. It will be made up of a number of different cells. Then she’ll go and hunt for these spiders and grubs stinging them with her stinger. This will inject a cocktail of neurotoxins that will paralyze these insects. Then she’ll carry them back and put them inside the cell and lay an egg on it. Then she’ll cap it off. Once that egg hatches, the larva will consume the paralyzed insects and grow to full adulthood inside the cell. Then it will break out and start the process over again.

If a wasp feels threatened, it will attack you with a stinger. If you see one flying around in your yard, they are very unlikely to try to attack you. Even if you chase after them, they’ll simply fly away because it’s the easiest thing for them to do. If you trap them, that’s another matter all together. But usually we find that these insects sting people when we get close to their nest. Wasps will protect their nest with everything that they have. So, if you have a wasp nest near your home or somewhere close, then it’s time to call a Tulsa exterminator to get rid of them. Check out our reviews!


If you’ve been stung by a wasp, then in most cases, basic first aid will be sufficient. You will want to make sure that the stinger has been removed from your skin. Wasp stings don’t have barbs so in most cases they’re not going to leave anything in your skin if they sting you. Then you will want to clean the wound with an antiseptic and use a Band-Aid or bandage appropriately. If you’re allergic to the wasp sting or bee stings, then it’s time to contact a medical professional to make sure that everything’s OK. People with allergies to wasp and bee stings can go through some very dangerous side effects if they are stung.
