Most wasps live less than one year and some only live for a few months. Stinging insects like bees, hornets and wasps send more than 500,000 people to the emergency room each year. Common home remedies for stings include coating the sting site with a meat tenderizer/water solution rinse, baking soda paste or even rubbing the site with an aluminum based deodorant!
