Last month, some idiot wrote that she had never, EVER seen a honeybee in the Boston area in her life. So, of course, two showed up in my backyard over the weekend just to spite me. To prove, once and for all, that I am the worst fact-checker ever. Here’s the photographic evidence.
At least, I assume that's a honeybee on those grape hyacinths. I know it's not a bumblebee or yellow jacket (if it were a yellow jacket, it would have stung me in the face as I tried to snap its photo), and that just about exhausts my bee knowledge. So, I’m happy to report that I know of at least two honeybees that are available for pollination services in the Greater Boston area.
But, they’re not going to come cheap.
