Thanks to all the rainy crappy crazy weather the humble bumble bee is struggling to buzz about & bee keepers are having to feed them with a sugar substitute. Like the rest of us they don’t like the rain, umbrella’s don’t work well for them, so they stay
The knock on effect is that the plants (which have took a bashing this year) aren’t being pollinated as they should bee.
I can count on one hand the number of bees I’ve seen this year, on the upside though, just 2 wasps. We saw more of both in Germany whilst there for just 10 days.
And it’s not just the bees, it’s all kinds of wildlife that are suffering & getting confused with the seasons. Sadly it seems there’s not much we can do to help.
So it looks like slugs & snails are going to dominate the UK in the future, ugh…
Come to think of it, those who dominate the UK now are a all slugs & snails anyway……………….
