BEES/ WASP

(Vespula vulgaris)

Background

Method of Control

Or the Oriental hornet Vespa orientalis (Oriental Hornet; English: Oriental hornet), is a kind of wasp wasps that like to sting and live in colonies.

Similar to the European hornet (Vespa crabro; European hornet) and the Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia; Asian giant hornet).

Many are found in the Mediterranean region, including Israel, but also in Madagascar and India.

As a result of being carried by human movement, their habitat began to spread to South America and even to Mexico.

The queen wasp is 25 to 35 mm long; male and female worker wasps are smaller.

In male wasps, the antennae have 13 books, while in female wasps always consist of 12 books.

In 2010 a team from several universities in Israel and the UK found that the yellow stripe on the wasp's abdomen was able to convert sunlight into energy.

The main metabolic activity occurs in the yellow pigment layer, where the sun is the main energy source.

This process may occur in the presence of a pigment called " xanthopterin ".

This could explain why these insects are more active when the sun is hot, unlike other wasps.
