Hello,

We have a cotoneaster bush in our backyard and this week it bloomed. We couldn’t find anyone to trim it before the blooming occurred and now I’m seeing hundreds of bees, we have a 1 year old and I’m worried of them attacking her. Is there a way to trim it back without being attacked at this point? I’m worried it’s just going to get longer and more bees will get closer to our patio door. Please help!

Bees don't attack, unless they're protecting their nest. I have several cassava plants around my patio and every morning I go out there, there are so many bees on those flowers it sounds like a swarm of bees -- no exaggeration. Their only interest are the flowers, not humans.

Great thank you so much, yea they seem to keep to themselves. I think I found a landscaper who can trim it, hopefully there will be no issues. I warned him about the bees and he didn’t seem concerned. Yea they definitely sound like a swarm so it’s intimidating! I appreciate the advice.
