    Does anyone know how the dandelion affects the mites? Most insects do not come near them.This is why most people plant them in and around their gardens.

    Pepper,
    You may be on to something there. Wouldn't it be lovely with the marigolds scattered about the bee yard? I was planning on planting some thyme, too.
