You and I both. They ar all over my sunflowers. Which of course are above my tomatoes and I cannot even get to those cept at night when I cannot even see them anyhow. The sunflowers are going to have to come out before the tomatoe harvest really starts.

My mom said that Marigolds keep certain bugs away, but she doesn't think that includes bee's...
I don't know what it is, but we are over-run with them this year! I almost am too afraid to leave my house, Seriously! So more suggestions on " Bee repelling plnats" would be very helpful! [Smile]

Thanks,

If it's been a particularly bad year climate wise in your area, it is possible that native plant species are not flowering as prolifically as usual and supplying the bees with their usual food source. So they are getting anything they can. Maybe plant bee attracting plants away from the areas you normally use. Like basil bushes growing in an unused corner. Dunno if this will work but the bees are not gonna just go away. They are one of the most beneficial insects we have. Without them there would be no sunflowers or tomatoes.

Your right Longy,

But I have a very allergic Fiance, and If I have to pick between Him and the bee's, the bee's got to go...
I think we have had an ok season, I think everything bloomed and grew quite well. But the Bee's are unbelievable! You can't go outside without getting bombarded with them, I am grateful however that none of us have been stung as of yet. One thing I thought about it the abundance of Catnip we have outside out back door, I think Bee's LOVE catnip. I think i may have to get rid of those bushes..... [Frown]
