Leaf cutter bees friend or foe

Post  Michael Cooper on Thu Jun 18, 2015 7:55 pm

I have spotted a leaf cutter bee dragging a leaf down into the edge of a pot of Sage near my bonsais should I welcome it or get rid of it?

With all the problems with bee populations these days, I believe any native pollinators should be encouraged. Chances are the damage to your plants will be minimal and only cosmetic.

They may be interested in your sage, but do not touch live woody plants. Go here: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05576.html
