Summer is Here and Modern® Pest Services Offers Tips About Wasps

Summer is Here and Modern® Pest Services Offers Tips About Wasps

With the advent of summer, so too comes the advent of black flies, mosquitoes, fruit flies and most harmful, wasps. Wasps are a typical summertime issue for many homeowners throughout New England and Modern Pest Services offers wasp control services to help solve this troublesome problem.

Wasps can be classified as either solitary or social insects. Solitary wasps fly solo and generally won't bother humans unless provoked. Social wasps, on the other hand, congregate in swarms and once they form a nest, they will continue to return to that location and become a territorial nuisance.
