"Carpenter bees are different than bumble bees. Carpenter bees depend upon boring into wood and laying their eggs. the grubs eat and come out the tunnel. I am told that if you put bubble gum (chewed) in the hole it locks them in. Very interesting…"

Bees in Compost

Any one have suggestions as to how to encourage bees to remove themselves from my compost pile. I have a recycled plastic container so I can't smoke them out by setting some of it on fire. I do not want to use chemicals. Suggestions?KatherineSee More

"I agree. Had the same thing happen to me last year. Never saw the culprits, but my irises were all uprooted and laying on the ground. This happened after they bloomed, so I just cut them back, replanted and they are blooming just as nicely this…"

"What do the rabbits do? Gnaw the stems or suck on them? I live in a city so rabbits are not that likely but possible as it is not a super urbanized area. Would love to know more. Thanks for writing. Interesting, very interesting..... Katherine "

Regarding the iris flopping problem I have the same problem and after reading about dividing them I think I will try that. But after they stop blooming. Unless you or someone else has more info. Mind bloom like crazy but I have noticed that the bloom are smaller.

Hi, Katherine...
I don't know for sure what's ailing your Iris, but do you divide them every couple years? I divide mine, but I hear they'll even stop blossoming if they're not divided. I'm thinking they might just be getting less vigorous if they aren't being divided(?).

Plant daffodils they are a repellant to deer etc. Tulips are the candy of the animal world.
