i don't see the gals working them in my part. On a side note I dislike those darn pear trees, smell like death and the berries become a huge mess when starlings move in on them to feed. Very fragile trees too, often become storm damaged easily. They are invasive and starting to see little saplings all over the place here in cleared areas, along highways etc.
I never really liked them either, but there is a row of them lining the road of the subdivision. And the bees are working them hard as they are the only main thing in bloom. Redbuds and dandelions are just coming out as well as other trees.
I am going to crack the hives open today for an inspection, probably have to wear a gas mask.
