...and I grow carnivorous plants.
We moved into our new house over the winter and I'm trying to come up with a way for both of us to be happy once spring rolls around. I don't want my plants to eat their bees, but my plants do need lots of sunlight to grow well. I was thinking of building an enclosure to put around my plants and wrap it in 1/8" mesh hardware cloth. I know 1/8" is pretty small, but was wondering if honey bees could still crawl through mesh that tight? Do any of you honey bee enthusiasts know? I could always just use bug screen if I had to, but that would significantly reduce sunlight and would keep pretty much all bugs out, which is not what I'm going for.
Or if anyone has any other ideas of how to keep their bees from getting eaten, let me know!
