Warmer temperatures mean you and your family will most likely be spending more time outdoors. Unfortunately, this time of year is also when bees are active. While honeybees can be beneficial for plants and flowers, you don’t want yourself or your family members getting stung. Use these tips to prevent bee stings.
Wear Darker Colors
Light colors attract bees, so it’s better to wear clothes with darker colors when you go out during summer. You should also avoid wearing clothes with floral patterns.
Skip the Scents
Perfumes, soaps, lotions and other scented products typically attract a curious bee or two. Avoid wearing products that give off a scent, especially if it’s a sweet or floral one.
Keep Drinks Covered
If you’re drinking soda, juice or another sweet beverage, make sure it’s covered when you’re outside. A bee can fly into cans or other containers, and you might not notice that it’s in there when you take a sip.
Clean Up Trash
Keep your yard free of trash, especially bits of food that might encourage bees to hang around on your property. Trash should be secured in a garbage can that’s closed, so these pests can’t get inside.
