Preparing Your Lawn for the Summer Heat

The summer heat can take a toll on your lawn. Begin preparing your lawn in the spring before hot weather arrives so that your grass doesn't die and so that you don't have to do as much work in the summer to maintain your lawn.

All it takes is for you to disturb them or their hive, and they will target you until they no longer consider you a threat. Did you know that wasps are among the predators that hunt bees?
