    I have lavender in my garden, and have honeybees happily pollinating it and other flowers every year.

    In general, good news. Specifically though, can they help with food production and general plant health like other bees do? But in general, very good news in terms of a healthy eco-system.

    Well Maybe the Bumble Bee has adapted enough to fight off the Varroa mite and come back stronger. I hope we can help and do the same thing for the honey bee.

    I live in Murray and have not seen bumble bees for years, until this spring. So far, I have seen two buzzing around my garden. Hope to see many more!

    I live in Murray and I haven't seen bumble bees for years, until this spring. Two have been buzzing around my garden so far. Great to see them again.

    I live in Bountiful and I have seen lots of bumblebees. Not so many regular bees yet.

    There are a lot of flowers in my Brigham City yard, but i rarely see honeybees anymmore. Thank goodness the bumblebees are plentiful. And the wasps, but they can go away anytime they'd like.

    More hunting opportunity. I used to shoot them with my BB gun when I was a kid.
