Where are the bees?

Asked June 9, 2018, 4:08 PM EDT

Hello, can you tell me if the late spring or cold snaps might have killed off large numbers of bees in Harford County? I am stunned at the lack of bees in my organic garden. Thanks

This is probably weather related. Not only has it been cool, but bees will not be out in rain, of which we've had tremendous amounts. Just give them time. You may have to do some pollinating with a brush if pollinators are not doing the job.
