It’s that time of year again when our backyard cookouts, pool time, and other summer fun are all threatened by stinging pests. So we’re here to help you get a good idea of how to keep yourself safe, especially in case of a major invasion.
Summer is in full swing! That means grilling, lounging with our feet in a kiddie pool (or, you know, an actual pool if you have one available to you), and just enjoying the sunshine.
It’s that time of year again where all types of buzzing—and stinging—insects threaten backyard festivities. But not all buzzing pests are stinging pests, and not all stinging pests are a threat to humans.
The warmer months are here, and the flowers are all blooming. It’s common knowledge that the beauty we see in spring is thanks to the most famous pollinator: the bee. Bees play an essential role not just in our garden, but around the world.
As we’ve discussed recently, honey bees can actually be very helpful. For example, about 1/3 of all food consumed in the U.S. can be attributed to pollination from the honey bee, according to the USDA. That’s about $15 billion in crops each year!
