    Item Description:

    A small community of fluffy-type wild bees are trying to make part of my back porch their home. I do not want to hurt the little fellas, I know they are endangered already, but friendly as they are, it is a bit too close to the human zone, so ta speak. What to do?
    If there is anyone out there who has a solution, other than extermination, I would love to hear from you, I have just read that they can be tamed, these ones are fairly easy to get at too, anyone interested?

    Thank you for looking and any and all considerations!

    Serge @ 250-653-4913

    Edit~ Problem solved! After a bit of research I used a repelling tactic, a sprig of peppermint and a few drops of citronella oil at the entrance, has worked fantastically! They moved! This apparently works well if you catch them just moving in, and worked on two different types of bees here.
