Friend called tonight with a question. He has two hives for pollination. Has had these hives for 7-8 years. He says there has not been a single bee on his sweet corn this year. Says in years past they have covered the corn tassels. This year they are working the cucumbers and squash but not the corn. WHY?
I told him maybe they found somthing they like better. But, it does seem strange. He says the variety is the same as last year. Anyone have any ideas? My bees usually work the corn very hard.
