Territorial defence of their wasps nest

Social wasp species are aggressive and will conduct a spirited territorial defence of their wasps nest . The size of the territory will depend on the species and the size of the colony. Most species will respond to movement over 20 feet away.

If a member of one wasp colony approaches the nest of another colony, that wasp will be aggressively chased away, or attacked and killed. Consequently wasps instinctively know not to go near a wasp nest that is not their own, for fear of being attacked and killed, and this is how Waspinator repels them.

When they see a Waspinator they think it’s an enemy wasps nest and they fly away to somewhere else where they don’t feel threatened.
