i've never heard of wasps carrying viral or
other diseases, but they might. if you are in
the minority and have a weakened immune system
for some reason then i'd avoid eating damaged
otherwise, if the fruit is sound (not rotting) i
trim off damaged areas and don't worry too much
also, if you are making jam on the stove that
raises the temperature long enough to kill off
most of what i would worry about (and the fruit
is acid enough and sugar does the rest).
I just wash them and eat them. Same with ants or bird damage if it's small
(birds do carry nasty diseases but perhaps not those birds that eat cherries).
Have been doing it for 35+ years and I'm still here...
