How to Keep Bees Away


Anonymous added on August 13, 2011 | Answered

I am moving next to a farm in NJ and just found out that they have a bee keeper on the farm. I understand everything about why bees are needed for the farm, etc. My mother-in-law, who is coming with us, is 81 years young and suffers from COPD, so I need to keep her health in mind. What, if any, flower keep bees away?

That being said, here is an article that may offer some help in controlling bees: http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/horticulture/dg3732.html
