For many years I have mowed my clover ridden "lawn". although I saw bees in the clover I didn't worry much about mowing them away. This year I decided to let the clove grow. Who needs a pristine English lawn anyways? Sighing! Sorrowfully I may have been too late as I have seen precious few honeybees or Bumblebees. The crickets seem to be in short supply also. I think
that frequent mosquito spraying by my village is contributing to insect loss.

I have maybe seen 5 bumblebees this year, my bee balm has had none! Not good.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
