What’s black, yellow and stings all over?

If you’re in the Southeastern Idaho region you know that summer time here is absolutely magical. One of the best ways to experience these nights are while sitting on your porch swing. With the breeze in the wind you smell the freshly cut lawns, the smell of hamburgers on a grill, and the sound of kids laughing and playing. All of this sounds wonderful and pleasant until some uninvited flying bugs are surrounding your home. Are you seeing what we’re seeing? Black, yellow, stings all over and especially scary when you come eye to eye with one? Yes, these are what we call wasps. With the heat of the summer coming upon us, wasps find it the ideal time to make their presence known and mess up these magical summer days we cherish.

One question you might ask yourself are where are they hiding? Just because you don't see them doesn't mean the hive isn't on or surrounding your home. Consider looking around these other areas of your home:

  • Inside grills
  • Light fixtures
  • In trees and bushes
  • Swimming pools
  • Rain gutters
  • Mailbox stands
  • Cracks and crevices
  • Under decks and patios
  • Playhouse/treehouse
  • Sheds
  • Trampolines

Wasps typically look for places that are higher and have more protection for their hive. This list may seem extensive but where there is shelter and protection is where they will nest. Get close to one and make them mad you will quickly learn that they pack a mean sting and are able to sting multiple times. Fear of heights while trying to knock down an angry hive?
