As families across the midwest continue to squeeze every last drop of The Great Outdoors from Summer 2019 before shifting their sights to Mother Nature’s Fall delights, Rose Pest Solutions - offers these insights on bees and wasps to help keep the sting out of the waning warm weather.
Not all stinging insects pose a threat to humans. While some are more aggressive than others, many are actually beneficial predators and pollinators.
“People’s fear of bees and wasps is actually ironic since they are pollinators and provide great benefit to our environment as they travel from flower to flower,” said Dale Hodgson, regional technical director for Rose Pest Solutions.
According to the Pollinator Partnership, 75 to 95 percent of all flowering plants need help with pollination. Pollinators are key to transferring pollen within healthy and productive agricultural ecosystems.
“With some awareness of the surroundings, humans can avoid stings and peacefully co-exist with pollinators in outdoor settings.”
When bees and wasps threaten more than recreational enjoyment by taking up residence in and around the home, Rose technicians are trained to remove nests and hives safely, using the most effective solutions.
