Honeybees or other bees? My actual honeybees don't really come out of their hive. They're still in there, population healthy, plenty of food...but you never see them actually leave or enter their hive. It's just...strange. That aside, in the past few weeks all of the other bee populations have skyrocketed. I am seeing so much bumblebee and mason bee activity it makes me smile to go out and walk through the garden. This is the peak time of their population, isn't it? Don't they start to dwindle as the days really get shorter and cool off?
