I was under the impression that honey bees did not feed on old fruit fallen from trees yet today I was walking through the woods with my daughter and spotted a yellow jack fighting with another bee so I stomped them unfortunatly the other bee was a honey bee. I looked around and to my surprise there were dozens of honey bees on old pears. I wanted to look for the hive I felt I was close but for my daughters safety I decided to look another day. I also want to note that there is a noticable lack of honey bees in the area around my flowers. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
