This is all anecdotal, and there haven't been widely published studies done on this, but many redheads report bees and wasps are more likely to sting them than those with other hair colours. Read more
Redheads appear to like flowers
The same goes for your red hair. Bees are especially attracted to patterns that resemble those of a flower, and red hair could definitely imitate nature.
Some scientific studies have found that bees are more attracted to people with red hair. ... Research has found that it is most likely because of their hair's resemblance to bright flowers.
They are typified as impulsive, quick-tempered, libidinous, and wild. The personalities of people with red hair are often believed to be imitative of their red hair, and they are seen as fiery, hot-tempered, hot-blooded, passionate, and angry.
Research has shown that people with red hair perceive pain differently than others. They may be more sensitive to certain types of pain and can require higher doses of some pain-killing medications. However, studies suggest that their general pain tolerance may be higher.
Bees and wasps instinctively perceive dark colors as a threat. Wear white, tan, cream, or gray clothing as much as possible and avoid black, brown, or red clothes. Bees and wasps see the color red as black, so they perceive it as a threat.
Especially female redheads are known to suffer higher pain sensitivity and higher incidence of some disorders, including skin cancer, Parkinson's disease and endometriosis.
When a yellow jacket is squashed, a chemical (pheromone) is released that attracts and incites nearby yellow jackets. Avoid wearing bright colors, especially yellow, or floral patterns that may attract some foraging yellow jackets.
Yellowjackets vigorously defend their nests. ... Attacks of hundreds of yellowjackets from underground nests can also be triggered by ground vibrations – thus, mowing lawns can be hazardous during the late summer season when colonies are large. 4. They sting you for no reason.
When a yellow jacket stings you, it pierces your skin with its stinger and injects a poisonous venom that causes sudden pain. You may also experience inflammation or redness around the sting a few hours after being stung.
For best results, wear white. This lack of color will typically make bees and wasps leave you alone.
Redheads look years older thanks to gene that fast-tracks ageing, researchers find. ... "The gene explains in part why some people look older and others younger for their age," said lead researcher Manfred Kayser, of the Netherlands' Erasmus University Medical Centre in Rotterdam.
We've been talking about how most natural redheads have very fair, translucent skin. In turn, this means thinner teeth enamel and yellow-looking teeth.
According to Collis Harvey, people with red hair produce more adrenaline than non-redheads and their bodies access it more speedily, making the transition to the fight-or-flight response more natural for them than for others.
Wasps have a strong sense of smell, which they use to find food sources. You can take advantage of this trait by using scents they dislike, such as peppermint, lemongrass, clove, and geranium essential oils, vinegar, sliced cucumber, bay leaves, scented herbs, and geranium flowers.
Since nectar is sweet, it makes sense that bees would be attracted to sugars and fragrances that smell flowery or sweet. That's why you may notice bees at your picnic, especially if you're drinking sugary sodas or eating fruits, such as pineapple and watermelon.
Bees will try and sting through any kind of clothing that you are wearing, regardless of the material. The trick is to not let the clothing pull tight against your body – the baggier, the better, and the less chance you have of being stung! Always wear thicker rather than thinner layers.
Redheads probably won't go grey. That's because the pigment just fades over time. So they will probably go blonde and even white, but not grey.
Redheads don't go grey
Red hair will never turn grey; it simply fades to white via rose gold when the time comes.
Hair Loss and Redheads
While redheads have the normal risk for traction alopecia from prolonged tight hair tying, and for male/female pattern baldness, they're more prone to winter hair loss.
Blue Hues for Redheads
Navy, cobalt, and soft powder are all great options. ... A simple denim blue is an easy go-to option that enhances the complexion of the true redhead.
A wide variety of creatures eat wasps, from insects and invertebrates like dragonflies, praying mantis, spiders, centipedes to birds such as mockingbirds, sparrows, nighthawks and starlings, reptiles and amphibians like lizards and geckos, and mammals such as mice, weasels, badgers, and black bears.
Of course, those pheromones are also different, but bees can detect those as well. Rather than detecting fear, bees smell pheromones which alert them regarding an impending danger. They do not directly detect fear.
Use soap and water
Mix two tablespoons of dish soap into a spray bottle of water and spray it on the nests. The mixture will clog the wasps' breathing pores and kill them instantly.
Yellow jackets don't usually leave stingers in your skin. Because of this, they can sting you multiple times, unlike bees. Bees leave their stingers in your skin, so they can only sting you once.
