Photoelectric properties of the 'yellow strips' in Vespa orientalis: a mathematical model.
The “yellow strips” on the cuticle of the Oriental Hornet (Vespa orientalis, Hymenoptera, Vespinae), present photoelectric properties. A mathematical model for the relative changes in resistance as aExpand

Deoxyribonucleases of the Oriental hornet (Vespa orientalis) venom--II. Partial characterization and effects in vivo on insects and mammals.
Abstract The presence of DNases in Oriental hornet venom sac extract and venom glands and their activity on invertebrates (bees) and vertebrates (mice and cats) were assessed. It was found that theExpand

ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE OF THE YELLOW STRIPS OF SOCIAL WASPS UNDER ILLUMINATION
Abstract— The yellow strips usually present on the frons and the gaster of Vespinae and Polistinae have photoconductive properties. When the yellow strips of living as well as of dead wasps areExpand
