Bees and wasps can easily ruin a picnic when someone gets stung. There are a few things you can do to avoid bee and wasp stings, however running away probably isn’t one of them. Setting up wasp traps can work but getting rid of a nest full of bees or wasps this way can be difficult. If you spot a bee or wasp, your first reaction may be to run away, but how fast do you actually have to run in order to out run a bee or wasp?
Bees are said to fly as fast as 20 MPH without carrying anything but when they collect pollen they travel between 12 to 15 MPH. A wasp’s top speed is less impressive at 15 MPH. So, if you can run up to 21 MPH you should be guaranteed to be sting-free for your next picnic!
Unfortunately, most humans run an average of 12 to 15 MPH, so unless you happen to be an Olympic sprinter, escaping this way might be a problem. Fortunately for you, there are much easier ways to get rid of wasps and bees. Most people use bee and wasp traps to get rid of hidden wasps nests.
