Stinging insects can build nests by your home’s front door, in your yard, and many other places.

Top 10 tips to avoid stinging insects this summer:

  1. Wear shoes.
  2. Overseed grass to prevent ground-nesting insects.
  3. Paint/stain untreated wood.
  4. Keep the lid on garbage cans and bags.
  5. Do not swat at a stinging insect. Insects can get mad! 
  6. Avoid sweet-smelling perfumes.
  7. Check your screens for holes.
  8. Seek immediate medical attention if stung, as reactions can be severe.
