Winter might finally be over in Idaho, and I think we're all feeling very excited for Summer! Right?

However, there are pros and cons to everything. Sure, Winter was cold, but we didn't have to deal with the annoying pests and bugs that are about to invade our homes this Spring and Summer.

As it continues to get warmer, Idaho homeowners will without a doubt notice an increase of annoying bugs in their homes etc. And, with so many new developments in places that used to be farms a year ago... there might be more pests than usual.

My least favorite? Bees. And when I say bees, I mean the whole category (bees. wasps, hornets, yellow jackets etc.) I was stung by something last year while I was outside playing with my dogs, and I couldn’t even figure out what kind of insect stung me because there are so many different kinds of bees and wasps in these parts of Idaho.

In the lists below, I was sure to include the best tips to avoid wasps this Summer! (And mosquitos)

Pro tip: If you're trying to minimize the amount of pests in your homes, just try your best to keep things clean, seal gaps and cracks, and vacuum/sweep regularly.
