Hi everyone, i think i have just seen a bumble bee moth. Do they sting and are they bad news for my garden. Thanks, lozi x



The clue's in the name, Lozi - its just a moth that happens to disguise itself as a sort of bee, so no, it doesn't sting, and it won't harm your plants, although a heavy infestation of the larvae on a plant might be a problem. But in this case, clearly not, you'd have noticed damage.
