    I just bought a house and have a yard for the first time. I have researched every little creature that flies around out there that I can get to stop flying long enough to identify.

    We have no Bumbles here, and I love them. This wholesale slaughter makes me so sad.  We do have the huge  black Carpenter Bees, and I have come to love their yellow bolo jackets and placid dispositions, but it isn't the same.

    I used to be afraid of them, but I will let honey bees land on me now. I've been around them long enough to know they are gentle little guys, just doing their thing.

    I really appreciate you looking after them.
