Spokane, WA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
As leaves begin to change, the air becomes crisp and apples fall from trees, outdoor enthusiasts find themselves dodging angry, stinging yellowjackets. They're everywhere. And now that summer is ending, they're hungry.
By fall their population has exploded and desperate yellowjackets are on the hunt for the carbohydrate-rich foods they need to survive, swarming picnics, harvest parties, concession stands and barbecues.
“Up until now yellowjackets have had plenty of food, but towards the end of the season, there are more hungry adults and less food to keep them satisfied. At this time of year, they will do anything to fill their cravings,” explains Dr. Qing-He Zhang, director of research at Sterling International Inc., developers of RESCUE!® Yellowjacket Traps.
Desperate, yellowjackets will travel as far as three football fields from their nest to find food rich in sugar and carbohydrates. What they find are sodas, fruits, juices, candies, cakes, and even vegetables.
A type of wasp, yellowjackets pack a mean and aggressive attitude. Unlike bees, they don’t die once they attack and can sting multiple times. RESCUE!®, an innovator in all natural pest control, offers tips and tricks to protect against these aggressive pests.
