The Q&A Archives: Flowers and bees

Question: I have Azaleas outside and every spring & summer the bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are awful. I have three children and we are always outside; however, during this time of year...I can't even open the front door without watching to make sure one hasn't flown into the house. Any suggestions would be appreciated....without having to uproot all the bushes?!?! Thanks for your time. MBragg

Answer: Misty,

I don't know of any bee and wasp repellant products. There are insecticides that will kill these insects but that may not be a good option either with the children around. Sorry but there just isn't a good answer to this question.

Thanks for asking. Please stop in again soon!
