Every year I have honeybees. Strange, NOT ONE THIS YEAR. I Know about their plight, but my goodness, to not even see ONE. SCARY

What efforts have you made to attract the honeybees to your yard and garden? Is there fresh water available for them at all times in a safe, shallow container?

Edited to add: I forgot to ask; are you seeing native bees, solitary, Bumblebees and other types of bees?

Very few bees of any kind so far this year, hoping it is just that not many of my flowers have opened yet.

We have bees of all sizes here and there are so many on the natchez crape myrtle you feel like you're vibrating when you walk under it, Big Grin

Normally the bees are all over my Carolina Cherry Laurel, but not this year. They were, however, all over the saw palmetto when it bloomed Shrug!

I see lots of bumble bees, but no honey bees. Yes, I have all kinds of flowers they love and have the honeybees every year, but not this year. Worried
