No message. Just out picking blackberries, scouting the property and enjoying the day.I don't know what your message is here in this post, however, I wish I had more bees around to pollinate my garden this year. I am not getting too good of a yield on anything this year, and I hardly see any bees or butterflies around like other years when my harvests were excellent compared to this year.
had a problem with paper wasps on our deck. Got one of these and haven’t had an issue.I welcome honey bees but this year we have alot of yellow jackets in ground nests and paper nests on our decks and landscape. Those I do not welcome. They sting just to sting. We got attacked just walking across our deck by a paper nest attached to the boards under the deck. Bad Azz bees. I gave them some juice for their rudeness. The wife took care of the ground nests too.
I should qualify... It tastes like... well, like other things that are good for you, kinda like grass & hayI'll look into that, thanks. I have lots of thistle and my wife likes to make herbal teas.

Oddly, a drop of honey and a pinch of pink salt - is a total game changer. It blends well with mint also.
Your wife will pro'lly know what to do - & lucky you! An apothecary woman & a cup of nice tea = happy times!
Know a Few that started some Bee Hives this Year they had some grapes and other stuff that they planted and want to see if they could get bees to work with that. So Far they are doing well... Just a couple bee stings...
Yellow jackets are hornets so doubt it will deter them from my decks. Wasps don't really bother us when they make nests. There pretty passive compared to YJs and Bald Face Hornets. Yellow jackets are trouble every year. We've been eliminating them but occasionally we miss a nest that gets full grown and loaded with them.had a problem with paper wasps on our deck.

its a fake hornet nest. Hornets kill wasps so they stay away. Haven’t had a problem last summer or this using it.
