Hymenoptera venom source material
Hymenoptera consist of different families, including the families Apidae and Vespidae. Three species which are very important in the context of venom allergies are Vespula vulgaris (the common wasp), Vespula germanica (german wasp) and Apis mellifera (honey bee). Stings of Hymenoptera occur very frequently. 0.3-7.5% of the population, worldwide, suffer from venom allergy. When humans, with a venom allergy, get stung they will suffer from severe local reactions, systemic symptoms. Atopic humans will suffer from an anaphylactic schock after a sting. In central Europe, 30-40% of the human with a venom allergy have an allergy for both, bee and wasp, venoms.
