Sheila Haniszewska sent this question along for us:
Does anyone know how the bees are doing on Gabriola?
I have a large California lilac which is usually buzzing with hundreds of bees this time of year. I should have seen many yesterday, in the sun. None. Just a solitary white butterfly.
I have a friend who has noted the same decline on her California lilac.
I have heard that we have had colony collapse disorder here, as well as some vandalizing by a certain cheeky bear.
