    Marilyn, it doesn't kill them! They'll just avoid it because of the smell. But yes, better to use around the deck than on plants that need pollinating!

  • Marilyn Baker

    Please don't use this on bees. We need bees to pollinate our food.

    Wasps are still vital in pollination. Some believe that wasps don't pollinate because they do not have hairs on their bodies which allow for pollination, but they pollinate using fine hairs naked to the human eye. They are also a natural pest control and eat nasty crop-eating insects. Because of this misconception, you could actually be doing your garden and local area a great disfavor!

  • Cydelle Klande

You could get little plastic bugs and spray paint them gold then glue em to bobby pins!

The best wasp/yellowjacket repellant for summer picnics: 2 ounces of mint extract. 2 ounces peppermint extract. 10 ounces rubbing alcohol. Pour ingredients into spray bottle and label. Spray down picnic area and play area. The mint is neurotoxic to bees and wasps. Somehow they know to stay away, but if you spray it on them directly it can also kill them.

A bee balances two water droplets on its back as it perches on a flower. The picture was taken by keen photographer Agus Sudarmanto near Doha, Qatar. He said: "There is no rain at all here so we have to spray water periodically on flowers. This is the reason there were drops on the bee, but it was amazing how it was just delicately balanced on his back."

Spraying the bees with sugar water to calm them - 1 c warm water to 1 c sugar in a spray bottle

Mint ... A 2006 study found that a spearmint spray killed 97 percent of varroa mites collected from an infected honeybee colony. Mint flowers are so popular among foraging honeybees that peppermint oil is often used in bee learning experiments. Maybe they know what's good for them, and derive a measure of parasite protection from mingling in the mint.

Here's a clear picture of what the Varroa destructor mites look like when attached to the back of a honeybee.

    Without bees we won't have many pollenators left. I love bees.

  • Love Marquardt

    Poor bee's. Not that this has anything to do with this picture...but when I worked for the Parks and rec for Doheny State park and a swarm of bees would stop and rest from being cold they would have a person come out and kill them. I think they would take the queen out :( or something like that. It was so sad to me. :(

Hawthorn - Hawthorn announces early summer with its sprays of white flowers. Pollinators such as bees and butterflies love the blooms. Then in late summer and fall, it attracts birds with its small red fruits. The orange-red autumn color adds another layer of appeal.

Instead of using a smoker to calm bees, you can also try spray ing them with "Honey-B-Healthy & water. It will keep them busy "cleaning" themselves off when you do a hive inspection......(sugar water may work as well)
