If you've been using the TrapStik® for Carpenter Bees this spring, you're already winning the battle against a pest insect that can cause significant structural damage to your home. But we're giving you a way to win even more.
As part of our employee "How-to" video series, Dewey in Research & Development demonstrates how to use the W·H·Y® Trap -- named for the three types of insects it catches: paper wasps, hornets & yellowjackets.
Housing starts are up, new construction is on the rise. The onset of warmer March temperatures brings an unwelcome invader: The paper wasp queen, searching for a spot to settle and start building a nest to raise her colony for the summer.
Just as spring signifies new beginnings for us, it means rejuvenation in the insect world as well. A key part of the life cycle for most insects happens in spring, and this season can set the stage for their activity the rest of the year.
