Wasps and honey bees can be confused since both insects can inflict painful stings. While honey bees can attack when provoked, wasps are more aggressive predators by nature.
It's important to recognize between honey bees and wasps to provide proper care treatment for stings and appropriate pest management. So, how can you tell the difference between a wasp and a bee?
Wasps, like many other pests, hibernate throughout the winter and are active in the spring and summer. They build their nests in places that offer protection from the elements, such as your porch or the surrounding yard.

Fruit flies can occur at any time of year, although they are more abundant in the summer when more fruits and vegetables are ripening.

In many ways, getting rid of fruit flies is no different than getting rid of ants, gnats, or other pesky pests. To permanently eliminate these pests, you'll need to be smart and have a long-term solution. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to exterminate fruit flies and reclaim your kitchen.
