Killer Campus Wasps

Killer Campus Wasps

Jake Wilkins, Reporter

Since students are going outside more often due to COVID-19 students are noticing there are a lot of wasps and the cause of them is actually kids. When a wasp makes a nest it likes to protect its nest. With all of the students playing around their nests, they swarm around to try to keep people away because they feel threatened. If students don’t stay away they try to sting them. When wasps swarm, the situation can be dangerous because wasps are stinging insects that become aggressive very quickly.

Since September 2nd there have been 15 reported stings, not including the kids and staff that have not reported their stings. “ I hate these bees(wasps), I can’t eat my food without them swarming around me, I even got stung a couple of weeks ago.” said 7th grade CMS student Zach Schwab. Overall these wasps are a problem that needs to be fixed.
