Attacting bees but NOT ants
I'm looking to attract bees into my small balcony garden. I am going to put out some sugar syrup as mentioned in an earlier post, but don't want ants to find it...
Is there anything that could be used to deter the ants? Do water barriers help? (ie a moat?)
Also, if the bees do find it, will they ignore my veggies that need pollinating, perhaps prefering the syrup?
