Bees are flying some, don't know what they are working, I don't see any flowers in bloom.
This morning I was out early spraying aspirin/vinegar on everything and had to watch out what i was doing because bumblebees were already out. My spray is so diluted that it won't hurt them, though they get fussy about being disturbed. I'm not seeing honey bees.
All our problems would be solved if only we would change our ways.

tom I was also spraying the aspirin today, and was also noticing bumblebees today, but no honeybees. I have a huge number of tomato blossoms, plus the herb blossoms, that they are all over. I also noticed a type of hornet, plus those tiny wasp like insects on the tomatillo blossoms. But no honeybees. I'm hoping this isn't a bad sign.
The Honey Bee was not found on this continent, but was later imported. When the bees would swarm the swarm would set up housekeeping in a new locale in a hole in the rocks or a building. Then came the mites, and the bees could no longer survive winter without the help of a beekeeper to help keep the pests down. So if you want honey bees, it is best to buy a few hives and set up your own apiary.
