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?

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
