What reason for dying bees?
I have had a strange occurance. I have had a TON of bees all over my plants this year. Lots of honeybees, bumblebees. I grow plants that attract them..sedums, agastaches, etc. Less than a week ago, there were so many bees covering my sedums that were just opening, it made nervous to walk past the sedums. Must have been 40 of them on one plant. The past two days, I have come out in the morning and seen bees like they were frozen in action on the buds. Like they were right in the middle of getting pollen and stopped. I also saw a few upside down on the underside of leaves. I saw 8 dead bees on the same plant that had 40 buzzing around it the other night.
Any ideas of what is the problem?
