My Shasta Daisies are dying. When they bloomed, something ate the petals off the flowers. I deadheaded them and then the plant started dying. I have two different clumps of daisies in different spots in my yard. The bugs I saw on the daisies resembled tiny bees. I have never had trouble growing daisies until last year and same story this year, even after buying new plants and replacing them. Hope you can help.

It's unclear what exactly is causing the issue with your Shasta Daisies, the tiny bees may just be that little sweat bees. They would be harmless to the plant.
I would treat them with Neem OIl. This acts as both a insecticide or fungicide.
