    How would you react to having a tree filled with bees? On the latest episode of You Bet Your Garden, host Mike McGrath discusses the crazy sights you can see during swarming season. Plus: how soil is going to save us all, and your fabulous phone calls!

    Question of the Week:

    We’re a horticultural society that runs a community garden. We suddenly have lots of wasps in the garden, especially by the edges of our mulched pathways. Can you help with identification? And a way to eliminate them? We do not like to kill bugs but there are children walking in this area and people actively gardening. Thank you so much.
