Experts are warning that July brings with it not only warm weather but stinging insects as well. To help avoid painful encounters or potentially a trip to the emergency room, Cowleys Pest Services, a pest control company that’s been serving New Jersey for 30 years, with help of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), is reminding homeowners of ways to prevent any run-ins with stinging insects this summer.
