FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - We're all feeling the cooler air beginning to settle in, a sure sign of fall and a changing of the seasons. Animals and insects feel this too, and a lot of them need to get ready for the cold months ahead. Squirrels stow acorns and nuts away. But insects like bees, yellow jackets, and wasps store food for the winter. It's this time of year they start to become a little more aggressive. Jason Meyers and Parkview Hospital talk about ways to avoid being stung and what to do if you are in this week's weather and your health.
