Have you ever noticed that there always seems to be more bees and wasps around as Summer turns to Fall?
There is a reason!
Bees are working hard to prepare for the colder months ahead.
Fall is really important for honeybees because they are starting to prepare for winter. During the late Summer and early Fall, bees are always working to collect enough food to sustain themselves and their entire colony throughout the cold Winter.
This is why you might notice an increased number of bees in your yard, at the park and around your tailgate: Bees are in “food-gathering mode” working hard to prepare for the colder months ahead.
While we usually associate bees (and bee stings) with Spring and Summer, you are just as likely—maybe even more likely—to get stung by a bee in the Fall.
Make sure you always have Sting-Kill on hand while enjoying the Fall weather. Don’t let a bee sting ruin your fun!
