CCE Offers Homeowners Insect Control Tips

Oriskany, NY (WIBX) – This year’s unusual summer has led to a bump in lawn insects, but the Cornell Cooperative Extension is here to help.
Swarms of honey bees are among homeowner’s main concerns, but the CCE says to call them before doing anything.

Honey bees live in sheltered spots, and should be left alone or taken by beekeepers, but not sprayed.

Grubs surface in August to feed, making it the best time to apply insecticide. Once they move deeper into the soil, they are harder to treat.

To treat millipedes and centipedes, simply sweep them up and throw them away. They will not damage property and can be deterred by removing damp conditions.
