Bees eating Shiro Plums

10 years ago

My Shiro plums are ripening and I've noticed a lot of them have been attacked (eaten, or half eaten) by something. Then I saw the culprit...bees.

I sprayed the previous week with carbaryl but the bees didn't seem to care. Is this a common problem with plums? What can be done about it? I have 20 or 30 in cloth bags so hopefully they'll be ok, but is there anything that can be done for the rest of them to stop the bees?
