By SKEETERHere is that Onion I shared with you on Tuesday. It is standing tall and blooming in my Georgia Garden. Do you see the hole in the ground under the phlox? I have an arrow drawn to assist your eyes today.
What could have made that hole? A toad maybe, they love to hide in my flower beds during the day and come out at night for creepy crawly snacks.
One things for sure, I know better then to stick my hand in such holes. One may touch a snake or who knows what! So observation is my best teacher in the garden.
Lets stand back and just see what happens around this hole. You can Click on the Video to see what I saw happening in this hole.
Yikes, BEE's! About this time last year, I was attacked by such bees that had nested under the backyard planter. I had no idea they were under the ground as I was watering the planter. I happen to be standing right over the hole when the water ran them out. I had bees going up my short's and shirt stinging me about 24 times. I do not want a repeat of that day as it was painful and may have led to a case of Hives about a week later.
As a gardener, I know the importance of having pollinator's such as bees in my garden. But I also do not want to be attacked a second time by these painful stings. What is one to do? Let them Bee (ha, pun intended) or get rid of them? How does one get rid of unwanted bees without killing them?
