Cuphea Plant

Anonymous added on November 18, 2011 | Answered

I am allergic to bees but have a massive Cuphea plant in my garden, which I love. Is there anything I can spray on it to keep the bees away without damaging the plant?

No, you cannot simply spray something to deter the bees. Keep in mind that these creatures are actually a welcome addition--they're very important pollinators. They are simply doing what bees do, pollinating plants---of which those beautiful blooms you like would not be without them. If you're concerned with bee stings, I would recommend moving the plant to another location, one that is not a high traffic area, where it can still be enjoyed but at a safe distance.
