The Q&A Archives: hornets

Question: With the depleted bee population, we see a ton of wasps buzzing around our abundant flowers. They are bot bothersome to us in terms of allergy or discomfort.

Question: Are wasps pollinators? I could kill these creatures but They are so around all the blooms that I was wondering


Answer: Glad you're so tolerant of wasps! Not many people are. As a matter of fact, almost every flying insect has the potential to transfer pollen from one flower to the next. I would encourage wasps, hornets, flies, butterflies, bees, etc. to visit your garden.
