I have a little area of my urban garden dedicated to butterflies and I currently have a dozen or more bees at any given time all over my pentas and mexican petunias. I use no pesticides and leave it up to nature to take care of things and I have seen at least three different types of bees around. I definitely think the bees dying off in certain areas are due to pesticides.
