The Importance of Wasp Control Manchester
Wasp stings can be more than an irritation. For people who suffer an allergic reaction to the injected venom, the unexpected disturbance of wasp nests can result in anaphylaxis. Approximately 50 people die in the US each year from an allergic reaction to wasp stings.
Wasps inject a tiny amount of venom when they sting. Enzymes within the venom break down cellular membranes and decrease blood flow, resulting in a localized and lingering pain for most people. Allergic people, however, develop antibodies to the venom when they are first stung. Subsequent exposure to the venom activates these antibodies and triggers an allergic reaction.
Allergic individuals should leave the removal of wasp nests to trained professionals.
