Climbing Virginia Creeper Has Lots Of Bees

Question From: N. Montgomery - Boise, Idaho, United States
Q: I have a beautiful, full Virgina Creeper climbing my fence. I just noticed a hugh number of bees on the vine, so many I can't get into the vine to trim it. I haven't seen this many bees on the vine before. Why is my vine suddenly invaded by bees?

A: I can't answer that, but they usually move in a few days. If not they may be a type of native bees that burrow under ground. In that case, they will always be in the area. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
