MARCH 21 2022 / PEST AND TERMITE
The cooler weather of autumn brings people outdoors for pickup games of football and pre-winter home improvement projects. This is also the time that stinging insect colonies have reached their peak and are more active and aggressive than earlier in the summer.
This combination can lead to more stings than expected as stinging insects are often considered a “summer pest.”
Stinging insects like bald faced hornets, paper wasps, and yellow jackets spend the summer building up their colonies so the queen can survive through the winter. T
This means that by September, huge numbers of stinging insects have one job to do and will sting at the ready if that job is disturbed, be it on purpose or not.
Tips to Avoid the Sting
Fall weather is too good to stay indoors to avoid some bugs with stingers. If you suspect a nest or infestation on your property it is important to call a professional immediately.
Reactions to stings can be severe and with so many insects present in colonies by this time of year, the risk of getting stung increases.
Even if you don’t think there is an infestation on your property, it’s a good idea to take precautions this fall.
