Help! Suicidal Honeybees?!
Hi! I am new to posting...I usually peruse the garden forums, but I'm having a strange thing happen in my hummer feeding stations. They are LOADED with honeybees, and they aren't just drinking, they are squeezing themselves thru the openings and drowning. They all seem to be on a suicide mission. Have I done something wrong this year? They also seem quite agitated with my presence, and will come after me if I get too close.
Is this a normal thing? I've had feeders for 20 years, and I've never seen this before.
I just wondered if the disappearance of honeybees have anything to do with this preoccupation with death?
