HomeStyle: Buzz off!

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Books, websites, whole organizations are in place to show you how to draw bees and other pollinators to your garden. But what if you don’t want them?

The notion might seem ridiculous to many of us: Gardeners are by nature worried about nature and all its contemporary ills. We can install plants that will throw a lifeline to beleaguered honeybees, bumblebees and butterflies while creating gardens that are natural, floriferous and free of pesticides. Who wouldn’t want to do that? Cnidophobiacs — folks who harbor a fear of insect stings.

See Saturday’s Democrat-Gazette to learn more about ways create a landscape that is not appealing to bees and wasps.
