For the longest time I have been seeing very few honey bees and I have read several articles about the shortage and various ideas on possible causes. However, I have noticed that this year in my back yard that there are hundreds of the little critters all over the white clover heads. I have purposefully stopped mowing the yard where the clover grows so that they have a good source, and so that I can watch them from the patio. I am unaware of anyone in the neighborhood who raises honey bees. Has anyone else notice an increase in honey bee numbers?
