Who's at your Picnic?

This time of year it's great to get outdoors and enjoy picnicing! But we often have unwanted guests.

  • Ants are probably one of the most notorious picnic and barbeque crashers, along with flies.
  • But it's the wasps, which are looking for a bit of your sweet soda or savory hamburger, that cause the most trouble.
  • (Bees are not interested in your outdoor feast).

Here are a few of the wasps found in our area:

 German Yellowjacket

  Bald-faced Hornet

 Paper Wasp
