Some species of wasps are well adapted to urban areas. Although they do not cause damage, the wasps are often attracted to sweet substances such as fruits and juices. The female wasps can inflict painful bites. In case of allergy, such bites may even be fatal.

When the queen is fertilized, it searches for a place to start building its nest. When the queen constructs a sufficient number of hexagonal cells, it begins to lay her eggs. Twenty days elapsed between laying and the emergence of the first adult wasps. Although the lifespan of a wasp nest is not more than one season, it can contain 10 000 30 000 wasps.
