Why we need bees and wasps
Himalayan Balsam, an import to British shores and profuse pink trespasser by waterways and lakes naionwide is services by hoards of bees and wasps, all eager to taste the exotic eastern nectar and pollen. Indeed, aftr tasting the delights, they move on the the next plant, the next, the next, ad infinitum, or so it seems. so busy are all these little labouring insects, that they all turn white with the amount of pollen they carry such that they are almost impossible to identify apart. The plants just buzz with interest.
