Sorry!!-yellow traps for catching insects outside-I think not!!

Fine in a greenhouse for an aphid attack but if you put these outside it will attract and trap all beneficial insects-I don't think Will was that bothered about the flies in his original post and nor should anybody else.

I so agree with Geoff !!!

Great photos everyone  I had a Hornet in my greenhouse a couple of years ago - frightened the life out of me

My photo is of a baby Shield Bug on a Marguerite flower

Barry tells them he is a bit deaf and could they repeat what they have said - he also talks very loud to them - they usually get fed up in the end

I haven't got any flowers yet either Jean  We must be patient and hope we will get some eventually - I will be upset if we don't get any as they are one of my all time favourite plants.
