Not all flying insects are harmful to humans, but the ones that are can be more than a nuisance. The most common aggressive stinging insects in the North Carolina triangle are yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps. Stings from these insects can be painful and potentially deadly if you are elderly, very young, or are allergic.
In addition to stinging insects, moths are also a common pest in our area. They can come into your home by getting on your clothing or through an open window. They are capable of destroying clothing, specifically wool and cashmere.
