Do you ever watch your backyard bees? Busy collecting pollen and sipping nectar, these benign little creatures pollinate our crops and flowers as they peacefully fly about. But when they nest nearby, it’s a smart idea to know how they’ll behave around your home. Join us now to learn about some common native species.
Carpenter bees are docile insects with the important task of pollinating our food supplies. But they nest in old wood and often choose inappropriate sites – like our fences, garages, and homes. If you’re experiencing problems with an infestation, join us now for a look at how to prevent and be rid of existing nests.
Bees are so important to our food supply- we wouldn’t be able to produce the vast array of fruits and vegetables that we enjoy on a daily basis without them.

By increasing our plantings of these wonderful flowers, we can help the pollinators to survive and thrive. Read more on Gardener’s Path now to find out how you can help.
