you can even buy some more in the garden centre. I use them in my pots.

To avoid cats leaving their mess on your garden/lawn put down plastic snakes. I have even visited a garden where they had lots of plastic snakes and people wondered what they were for. Cats don't seem to like them at all. They are cheap to buy and come in a variety of colours and certainly create a talking point. The only time i have a problem is when the grass is too long.

Has anyone else had alot of Bee Flies in their garden? They look like bees, they hover alot and they have a long probosis. It took me a little while to find out what they were. Some people have said they are hummingbird hawk moths but these are not around at this time of year and would be much larger. Apparently they are parasitic on solitary bees, wasps and beetles. Fortunatley they don't sting!

For a while now I have seen lots of insects in my garden that resemble bees but hover and have a long probosis. Someone  told me they were hummingbird hawk moths but it is far too early and they are much larger. After investigating online I have discovered that they are in fact flies and are parasitic on solitary bees and wasps and beetles. fortunately they don't sting. Has anyone else seen these?
