As summer finally hits our northern state, many New York residents prepare for all of their normal summer activities - picnics, outdoor parties, and general outdoor activities. Many of us want to make the most of the warmer weather we’re getting, and we often forget to plan for some of the negative impacts summer can have. Along with the warmer weather comes the threat of some warm-weather pests - stinging insects. Some stinging insects, such as honey bees or bumble bees, are actually quite beneficial to the environment with their pollination habits and behaviors. However, they can still cause quite a few issues for New York homeowners.


Stinging insects on your property can be dangerous for you, your family, and anyone who comes onto your property. Their tendency is to defend their nesting sites aggressively, if disturbed. Some types of wasps, like the yellow jacket, are easily agitated and may swarm you if they believe their nest is in danger. Additionally, yellow jackets have smooth stingers, which allows them to sting again and again without harming themselves. This has resulted in many cases of painful stings that have even been fatal in certain circumstances.

Many of the stinging insects that were dormant during winter and early spring are now returning with the blossoming of summer flowers and suitable temperatures. It can be frustrating, and you may be unsure about which steps to take, when wasps, bees, and yellow jackets create nests on your property. Not only do many stinging insects pose a significant threat to your health, but they can actually get in the way of outdoor activities and fun events.
