Wasps and hornets are both a threat to humans, especially if they build their nests in your garden or attic. When sugar or alcohol-containing traps are placed near humans, they actually attract wasps, increasing the risk of stings. Philip Hoare claims that wasps “only sting if you attack first (reasons to celebrate the wasp plague, G2, August 13).
