I am in Belize, Central America, and these things are beginning to bug me!
I have tried neem and my homemade pepper spray, but these insects keep coming back.
Anyone have any idea what they are?
I think they are a bee or wasp, and are probablly pollinating at the same time they are nibbling
my okra and bean flowers. They even nible the beans andokra, causing damage!
I don't want to kill them, only discourage them without hurting the plant. My latest concoction seems to be a bit too strong for the bean flowers.
