Can you believe we are approaching late summer already? Well, stinging insects sure can. Bees, wasps, hornets and yellow jackets are increasing their activity this time of year. Do you know why?

Adult stinging insects have been spending the last few months raising the young in their colony. They haven’t been eating, and by now they are quite hungry which means it’s time to get out there and find food. Fertile kings and queens are also emerging from the nest to get a start on next year.  All of this adds up to significantly increased activity.

It’s important to be aware of this increased activity so that you can stay safe. This means keeping food and drinks covered when eating outside, ensuring garbage and recycling cans have properly closed lids, maintaining a healthy lawn to discourage ground nests, and keeping an eye out for nests.

If you experience stinging insect activity around your home or business, it’s best to steer clear of them and call in the pros.
