Red wasp help

Postby Rachgamer09 » Thu Oct 08, 2020 7:54 pm

Ok I’m at my wits end here. I’m a nursing mom and have been trying to figure out why on earth I’m being targeted by red wasps while just standing outside. I don’t go mess with them or anything I’m literally just standing there. I can have others around me but they only come after me. Is the pheromone for attack for them the same compound as a nursing mom? If so what can I do because I have an allergic reaction to their stings and can’t take Benadryl due to it drying me out. Someone please help
