received from Val:

Pollinators!
Bonjour!
...in pots on my terrace are lots of lavender plants, flowers, herbs and a honeysuckle tree or two. In previous years, they have been visited by lots of bees, butterflies and ladybirds.

Almost none of these have been seen this year -- and I haven't seen a bee on the lavender for a  couple of weeks now.

I read that the European bee population has been struck by a virus and is in danger. If what is happening, or rather not happening on my terrace is typical, then this is very true.

On my daily walks in the countryside with my friend's dog, there's hardly a butterfly around -- all the exotic, colourful and splendid ones have gone.
Alas.
Val

I follow the Group closely but am not a Member.

Bon weekend, Val

Jeeeeez louise! As a writer I can't believe I spelled hole wrong. Senior moment perhaps. My apologies.

Small Wasp preparing a nest in one of our bee boxes. The semi-covered whole at the lower left is a recently opened nest from last years wasps. For some reason the wasps have found this box to their liking, the bees have not. OK by me, they all pollinate our garden.

Diego, I live in central Sweden. It sat on the ATM machine when I would take out money. It would be fun to know what it is for any bugs, have never seen anything like it. :)

Some members of our Congress, Earl Blumenauer and John Conyers try to clean up our world, see:

...The die-off of 50,000 bees in Wilsonville, Oregon – roughly 300 nests - after the application of the neonicotinoid dinotefuran was a call to action...The Oregon Department of Agriculture is investigating the die-off and is temporarily restricting the use of 18 pesticide products containing dinotefuran...Meanwhile, Europe has already moved forward with restrictions on the use of neonicotinoids...
This week I introduced H.R. 2692 The Save America's Pollinators Act  with my friend Congressman John Conyers to suspend certain uses of neonicotinoids until the Environmental Protection Agency reviews these chemicals and makes a new determination about their proper application and safe use...
