Wasps and Hornets Remain Very Active Throughout The Summer Months
In spring and early summer, pests were busy reproducing, finding shelter, and invading properties. Stinging insects, such as wasps and hornets, were among those pests. Here in southern Texas, these pests can still cause problems in late summer and early fall, if not year-round. In other parts of the United States, wasps and hornets become less active the closer it gets to fall. However, here in Texas, many of these problematic pests continue to infest properties and get in the way of outdoor activities. With the prospect of year-round stinging insect problems, it’s a good idea to know exactly what you’re up against.
Problems Stinging Insects Cause on Texas Properties
If you've ever been stung by a wasp or hornet, you know the pain and problems they cause. Many species of wasps are known for building nests inside old sheds, forgotten attics, and tall trees. Once these nests are established, certain wasp species, such as yellow jackets, will defend their colony aggressively. This means any creature that appears threatening could become a target for multiple stings. Yellow jackets commonly build nests underground, which can be especially dangerous for homeowners. There have been cases of people being attacked by wasps after going over a hidden nest with their lawnmower. For individuals who are allergic, the danger associated wasp stings increases.
Additionally, wasps and hornets scouting for food often ruin outdoor parties and gatherings by landing on food items, flying around people’s heads, and crowding around anywhere food spills are present.
