I recently purchased a"Euonymus Japonica Bravo" plant, and - to my horror - it seems always to be attracting Bluebottles, flies and 'mini'-wasps (well, they look like wasps but much smaller).
Now, I don't mind too much these 'wasp' things but... I hate the bluebottles and flies... especially as the plant is in a container on my patio and not far from my kitchen door.
i. Why does it attract these unwelcome insects?
ii. How do I safely stop this?
Advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks, in advance.
