Where Are the bees?
This entry was posted in Pollinator Corridor, Pollinators. Bookmark the permalink.
While NH has moderate drought, VT is even drier and drought affects food supplies for bees–even when little oasis areas like the pollinator corridor are in bloom, we see whole landscape scale impacts. That would be part of my guess. Downtown including areas adjacent to the MRG have been HOT! In some more wooded forest fringe-field areas up higher, the bees/pollinators seem to be active but we don’t mow our lawn often and that helps to provide clover and other flowering plants in good supply whereas most days we hear the drone of lawn equipment elsewhere…
you can find the bees in my nearby pesticide free lawn and on the lemon thyme that has naturalized into it, giving bonus aromatherapy to anyone who mows.
Glad to know there are bees enjoying your lemon balm, Amelia!
