My bees have started collecting something. They are coming in heavy and are fanning at night like they are drying nectar. The smell coming from the hive is like hay or straw. Does anyone know what flower that smell may be coming from?
The only thing I can see blooming here are Bradford Pears and I've heard they get zero nectar or pollen from these.
