Not as many Bees as last year, but the Wasps seem to out earlier here in South West England.

We have an Apple and Pear tree, with plenty of blossom, so why aren't they being visited by the Bees? A worrying sign.

I have seen a total of 5 bees since the start of spring. I have been making a point to keep an eye out for them out of curiosity. Out of the 5 i have seen 3 were dead on my doorstep, not sure from what tho.

Nashville TN,

Normal amounts of bumbles, some wasps, (but less than last year) and only two honey's all spring, even with a yard full of clover.

Last year in the spring there were quite a few and they dropped off a good deal by mid summer almost being not apparent by late summer. This spring, they just arent really showing up in any numbers.

Oh, and I keep a good eye out too, I walk in the yard barefoot, in the clover, so I am pretty vigilant.

I haven't really been looking, but just yesterday and today I noticed a few bumble bees that were close enough to earn my attention. Only 3 or maybe 4 of em though.

I've had plenty of honey bees pollinating my blueberry bushes and many other vegetables in my gardens. Had plenty last year as well. Honestly I haven't seen much of a decline over the years. That's not to say there is not a decline, it's just that it is not so noticeable here.

New Brunswick(canada not jersey), haven't seen any so far. Although it hasn't really been warm here as of yet, so not too worried about it yet.

Long-time Southwestern MO inhabitant here,

Despite the vast amounts of rain and late arrival of warm weather, I actually saw quite a few honeybees frequenting the area. Not too many wasps, but the bugs are definately in season now! Add too it the high number of gnats, and I dont doubt that there's going to be plenty of standing water left around for the misquitos to breed in...

Well, over here in Eastern Washington my yard is buzzing; no issues at all. Do you plant flowers to attract them in? They seem to really like my Easter lilies, and the calla lilies as well. We also have lots of bushes for them as well.

Here in northern California I’ve only see a couple of honey bees around the house but out in the local parks and rec. areas I’ve seen and had quite a few close encounters with bumble bees. Not seeing too many honey out there though. The strange part I have to add is, I went and did some early kayaking in lake don pedro back in January. While I was there the water was spotted with dying honey bees. They were trying to fly, but too weak to get out of the water. They were just spinning in circles creating small whirl pools, with the water still you could see the whirl pools all over the lake. When I came ashore on the eastern side of the reservoir i found something more shocking to me. While unloading my lunch from my boat I look down and realized I was kneeling in a line of dead bees formed on the shore that washed up. It shocked me cause the line was about 4 inches thick and stretched out the whole 100 or so yards of that section of shore line. I investigated after lunch and found that a mile down many of the sections of that shore side had the same affect. There were thousands of dead bees and out of season if I’m correct. Just figured I’d share.
