    If they are still on when you cut them, stand them in a bucket of water in a dark room like a garage with the door open. They leave the flowers and head for the light. Then bring them into the house.

    Pollen beetles are harmless. If you spray pesticide on them, you will also kill pollinating bees.

  • i think they are cute, and can assist with pollination... Learn to love your pollen beetles??!
