There's a serious problems with bee colonies disappearing for the last few years. We need to do everything we can to make those little guys happy.
I ordered a hive. They are having trouble, hope a cure can be found.
the good news is people like us do what we can to help them out. the other good thing to know is pollination of most of our crops is self fertile or done by many insects. the larger squash and such require some love from us.
If I cant eat it it has to flower to be in my yard. I do the flowers to help the pollinators and provide some color
I do not know if this is a 'domestic' bee or a wild one. In the hot days I have them visiting in the evening. One of the reason have some cut flowers floating in the water along with a pile of lava rocks. The poor things can not swim. And I happen to love honey, so I must also show the love to the honey bee.
I happened to be out this morning in my garden and saw a few enjoying my flowers
I am sure in this heat by now they have run away
