I sure think they do, for the purpose of this thread. Certainly can't garden without them. ;)

It's just amazing what a nice rain will do. We can water our gardens faithfully and keep them alive, but a good rain just makes them leap! which reminds me, I need to water mine this evening. The weathergirl keeps saying it's going to rain, but we get three drops.

I havent seen too many honey bees around this year. Last year we seen a few buzzing around the yard, wish they would make a come back from the blight that took them from us.

glad your garden is finally taking off for you. I haven't seen any honey bees this year. a few bumble bees. maybe when the drought breaks, they will be back. I hope

Bees are going nuts like they are starving LOL! But I notice theres not very many like I had years before. Also I had not heard once this year on News about African Bees. Last year they were so bad attacking people,. There has not been any reports this year. That tells me drought is really bad.

I guess those Africanized bees have a worse reputation than they warrant, but the idea of them just scares the p!$$ out of me. Maybe I have watched too much TV. :/

Most beeks have mastered the art of handling African bees by now. They are just a little more short tempered than the Italians and have to be handled more carefully.
