I have sweet grapes in my garden but as it gets ripe the bees are coming and are eating up the grapes. What can I do to repel them/protect the grapes from the bees?

Grapes and bees seem to go together, so you probably will always have some around the grapes. You can reduce their number by harvesting as soon as the grapes are ripe, checking often to catch them when the time is right. Be careful when you harvest not to damage grapes that are still ripening. Also remove any damaged or rotting or fallen grapes as soon as possible to reduce the attraction to the bees. If you are allergic to bees you might want to ask someone else to do the harvesting for you. I hope this helps.
