Having a clean house may be more than just a courtesy to visitors for some plants. A recent study found that bees will avoid plants harboring dead spiders or other insects, moving on to more welcoming, clean hosts. The bees seem to have an instinct to avoid potential predators in the plants they choose to visit, which is unfortunate for the plants - their pollen will therefore have no way of being transported to neighbors.
