Do you have suggestions for temporarily removing 2 bees to stake a sunflower?
There are two bees that have claimed my Russian Mammoth as theirs from dawn to dusk daily. They are quite cute but I just need them to go away for less than 5 minutes so I can stake the plant. I don't want to find out the hard way that I'm allergic to bee stings
The concern is obviously valid, but the likelihood of being stung in the process of staking your plant isn't high. I work around bees in my garden all the time, though my husband keeps more distance due to an allergy to stings. The only time I've been stung is when as a kid I was catching them in my cupped hands as they buzzed around a flowering vine. Friends scattered far and wide when I screamed in pain, but I lived to tell about it…
Anyway, plan to wear long pants/sleeves, read a little bit on the topic: http://www.buzzaboutbees.net/bee-sting-facts.html
and don't let your mammoth go unstaked, even if you have to ask a brave friend for help.

It's getting better and better, but why would that lead people to believe that removing...
