No bees in my Baltimore garden
This year my beautiful garden has attracted no bees, not even the native bumblebees that are usually so numerous. It is heartbreaking. Every day I go out and look for insects, and so far I have seen two butterflies, a dragonfly, one bumblebee, and two honeybees, plus a wasp or two.
Are other people having this problem? Is there anything I can do? I am wondering if the heavy rains we had or the terrible winter affected the native bees.
My plants are mostly older, and some are native--not many HD bedding plants, and the ones I did have I pulled out after reading the Friends of the Earth paper.
