I have one acre of land. FULL of bulbs and plants to draw in butterflies- feed birds and help the wildlife trapped in my area as humans chop and cut and destroy the land- I have seen in 30 years- the bees once here have been replaced by black boring bees that destroy wood structures and porch railings and more. HOLeS in the ground of HUGE yellow jacket nests- have cost me over 2 thousand dollars in 3 years from allergy to the stings- my animals being attacked as the swarm. More huge biting in ground bugs I have not seen before- possibly the killer bees prevent us going to the back areas- and no dogs can go out long- as these bees attack. Azaleas- the Humminbird loves them - and I am so scared for my grand children and your future!!
