Are you wearing any chemicals?

My friend's mum who keeps bees suggested this:

 
"I have no idea but her garden might be in the bee's flight path. Bees fly in and out of the hive and establish a sort of pathway into the hive and they don't like anyone in it. I would say they should contact the owner and tell them of their concern. The owner could put up a sort of barrier in front of the hive like a fence height thing that would force the bees up into the air over it when they flew in or out.
The other thing is bees don't like blue it seems so don't wear blue. I have been told this anyway. I mean they like blue flowers but I remember someone saying that they can get slightly aggressive with blue.
It is probably a guard bee guarding the hive. For heaven's sakes don't put my name to that though. What do I know yet."
Hope this helps :)

hi Diane, thanks for your reply. I raised it with the garden coordinator but at that stage I thought it was more likely to be wasps as they'd been a wasp nest in my garden. I don't really know the history of the bees or how long they've been there, except the person who has the plot has been there a long time. Several of us are unhappy though (its not nice to have bees chasing you!) so I thought if I tried to find out some possible suggestions / solutions I would be in a better position to talk to the coordinator again.

HI Ronnie,

Have the bees been peaceful before? if that was the case,

diffferent possibilities. More aggressive bees could be:

hive has been disturbed repeatedly

Hive has been requeened naturally or by the beekeeper

Hive could be handdled by a different person.

You are now on their flight path

Have you shared your concerns peacefully with the owner? Cheers

Diane

Bee problem...can you advise? I have a plot in a community garden & the one next to me has a beehive. Over the last 6 weeks - wet weather or dry, I'll be working on my plot when a bee will quite often come & start buzzing aggressively around my face, forcing me out of the garden. So I've been unable to do all my autumn planting which is really disappointing. Could it be to do with how they're being handled? Pls email me sharonlovelock@hotmail.com if you have any ideas :-)

Any Auckland people interested in growing wheatgrass together? I have 8 litres of organic seed and organic fertilisers but no ready soil or  trays, so can supply some seed and fertiliser in exchange for soil and trays.

Help! My veggie patch has been invaded by some sort of mushroom. Some of my peas started dying, then other plants havn't been doing to well. I noticed some patches of mushrooms (ugly brown ones) and I have dug them up. When I started digging, i found the mushoom plant (under the soil) is HUGE, I've dug out what I can, but i think its ruining my garden....

Is there anything I can do to kill it? Remember I have live veggies in there I'ld like to save.

Any help much appreciated..

Thanks.

Swan plants available for removal. Last year's self-sets are now 1.5-2m tall, flowering and too numerous and close together!
