Ever since starting up my two colonies, I have noticed a large increase in the Bumble Bee population. There is a slight uptick in Carpenter bees as well. I am not complaining as they seem so docile and are a joy to watch working the flower gardens we have in our yard. They are large and move slowly so one can really observe what they are doing. To compare BB with HB is like comparing a Humvee to a Ferrari. Just a great lumbering creature.
Not posting a question, just my observations.
