Another Bee question

1509 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Jim in NC
haven't heard from Al in a while, Does anyone else feed wild bees?
I depend on wild bees for pollination and feed them in early spring and late fall.
Should I be watering them in this drought? if so how do you water bees?

Just got off the phone with a friend who is a bee keeper and has been for about 50yrs. Dave is right about some source of water. She said that if you have a bird bath or they put a post in the watering trough and that works too. Asked her about your peaches being eaten by the bees and she said that they are not the problem that they will not eat on them unless something is breaking the skin. If you have stink bugs or if they are weaping it will attract them but they arn't breaking the skin. They are orchard people as well said to tell you see if you can find what is attacking the peach.Hope this helps.
Am more than glad to ask her if you have any other questions.
