As spring arrives and the weather begins to warm, stinging insects become more common. Even if you aren’t aware of an allergy to stinging insects such as bees or hornets, it’s best to take precautions.

In fact, depending on the species, a group of caterpillars can ravage the foliage off of a large tree in a matter of days or even several hours.
