I have seen bees swarming in my backyard. Live in Fernandina Beach, FL. Noticed coming from ground area. Think maybe cutter bees. Near base of a wooden fence covered with jasmine. Think they are feeding from my beauty berry…don’t know. Do not really want to kill..just make go away.
You have a couple of options that can help.
If you want to keep them off the plants you think they’re feeding upon, this can be done safely and without the need of killing them.
Simply spray down any plant you want to protect with NBS REPELLENT. This material mixes 5 oz per gallon of water and can be applied directly to any plant, tree or even the side of your home. NBS won’t kill anything. Made from essential oils, its just a repellent and insects like bees will stay off treated surfaces. Most commonly used as a paint or stain additive to repel insects, you can also mix it with water and use it as a spray too.
Now if you learn that they’re not actually nesting in the ground but are merely flying around the grass or other turf areas, you can also spray NBS to chase them away.
Treatments will last 30 days and will basically repel any kind of flying insect from the treated areas.
