    Re: Why do I not see Sumac yet?

    I have some Staghorn, but most of the sumac is called Winged here. Not sure if that is the correct name or not. It has small leaves between the larger ones that look like small wings.

    Re: When can I stop feeding?

    I forgot to say if you use the milk jugs and oil, you will have a few bees to get in and drown. I never had more than a couple a day get in on the ones by the hive entrance. I don't like to use them...

    Re: Bees Mating? (Picture)

    Not a honey bee, but yes I believe they are mating. I have some native bees that look very similar to honey bees, but they are solitary and live in the ground.
