For those of you who are not seeing bees yet, we have had a very cool month 
here in Tennessee.  Our bamboo was nearly a month late in sprouting, and I 
just can't get squash and cucumber seeds to come up.  You may find that your 
spring is running a bit slow too.
    Following the Big Easter Freeze last year we had reduced numbers of 
paper wasps, very few yellowjackets at all, and zero baldfaced hornets.  The 
giant hornets came through just fine though.  This spring the paper wasps 
seem to be back in normal numbers, as the few nests we had last year were 
incredibly prolific, due to lack of competition I am sure.  Don't know about 
the yellowjackets and hornets yet.  Not too many bumblebees this year, but 
plenty of carpenter bees, of course.  Donna
