Don, your shot across the lawn to the mountains will make an excellent album. I save your photos for my benefit and pleasure. Excellent!

Daniel, a thorny perimeter of brambles around the outside, a tall stand of holly inside that or something prickly. Then your fruit trees and your vegetable garden should be protected from the roving bands of immigrants. Put up a massive gate as the only entrance to your Garden of Eat'n, and they should adequately keep you safe. A gaggle of geese could act as watch fowl, maybe a llama or two to spit and bite.

Spud, I think you are probably right. Let's hope the city gardeners don't use a lot of toxic chemicals.

There do seem to be almost as many natural pollinators in my garden as honey bees.

The nearest agriculture areas start about 3 miles from me.  With a limit of 4 miles to find flowers, I still guess that most of my bees come from places in the city.

Spud, my guess is, with the 4,000+ elevation, the Snake River nearby and all the agriculture that grows near you, that you have a natural pollinator population plus the bees brought in for the farms. 

The bee loss appears to be an awful experience and I hope many hives were brought in to catch some of the loose bees. The article said some bees found hives. I wonder what caused the crashes? 

The drone photos perfectly suited for this task performed beautifully. I wonder where one gets a camera on a drone?

I found that article while trying to find where all the pollinators in my garden were coming from.  I couldn't find out, but there must be hives in pocatello.

Joan, thanks for the Idaho Bee guide.  It's a coincident that I was just getting ready to post a sad story about several trucks full of bees crashing and killing millions of bees close to my home.  It was a year ago, but I just learned of it.  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3232745/Millions-bees-wreak...

Greetings fellow gardeners. Your photos inspire me to get up early and tend to my jungle. 

Daniel, your garden amazes me and to think you have challenges other than gardening to which you attend. 

Randy,your sunflowers healthy standing tall and erect. They reveal you have soil that provides all they need

I ran across an interesting paper from U of Idaho, while looking for information while I was at Laura's. 

Homeowner Guide to Bees

There is a small blip about Sweat Bees but does not have information on repellant. 

The following article may be useful:

What gets rid of sweat bees without using chemicals?

Randy, that is inspiring! great photo!

That sunflower on my pic was volunteer.

Just beautiful, Randall! Don't compare...

Comment by Randall Smith on August 23, 2016 at 7:53am

Here's my sunflower/corn version. Not nearly as nice as Daniel's.
