Last year I posted a query as to what type of bug might be nipping the flowers off my runner beans. The culprits are bumble bees. Apparently they have discovered they can get to the nectar quicker if they sever the flower from the stem - clever little sods!

Help me unhook these, please.

Hi all

 

 

little onions i was once told a small amount of washing up liquid and water in a spray bottle lightly sprayed over your beans may discourage them as i know it helps rid those black flys on sun flowers and used in small amounts could help you, whilst not hurting the beans

 

hope your well:)

Garlic and tobacco liquor. Get a bulb of Garlic and a few fags and make a steep from it. Don't touch the stuff because it can cause a reaction on the skin.

Anyway...put the stuff in an atomiser/spray bottle and apply that to your plants. That'll keep mites, bees, aphids and allsorts of nasty little blighters off your plants.

You won't be doing any harm to the plants or the bugs. To the plants, it's just organic matter. To the bugs...well they won't go near it in the first place.

what about putting very small muzzels on the bees

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

Getting the muzzle on is easy enough its doing the buckle up thats a bit fiddly!

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot!
