I have tried, during the last few years, to grow more 'bee-friendly' flowering plants, and saw some bees during this last disastrous summer, despite the rain.

Well done you Sylvia - our bees seem to be thriving despite the poor summer. But almost all the honey has had to be left for them to eat for this coming winter. They deserve it though. Fascinating creatures and so clever.

Poisons that kill insects will kill us. Anyone who has learned about Integrated Pest Management knows this or should. We're in a new century, we should know better.

Every year I battle hornets, who love my sunflowers, but will not spray in fear of killing a bee! It is a trade off I am willing to deal with. As for the decline, I have noticed there are not many honey bees in my yard, garden and area. I have had two squash plants grow big, without one squash forming. I attribute it to the decline of bees. I hope our efforts to change the way people farm and control pests. Organic is best!
