Bees on Wisteria Vine
I moved into a house that has a wisteria vine that is old because it covers the chain length fence. Anyway, I encountered a major problem of bees hanging around the giant vine. Can I spray something to keep them away? I do have a pet.

As long as the fence is not in a high traffic area, the bees should'nt be a problem, especially bumble bees, which seem to favor the plant. In fact, bees are extremely important in the pollination of many types of plants, including the vegetables we eat. Getting rid of them would have a profound effect on the ecosystem. That being said, here is an article that may offer some help in controlling bees: http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/horticulture/dg3732.html
