A few days ago I noticed a few honeybees flying around the hummingbird feeder. Within a couple of days there were so many I had to remove the feeder. As you can see in the photo, the bee guard does work. All the bees chose the spot without the bee guard. I wasupset that I had to remove it since this is the time the hummingbirds are feeding heavily to prepare for their long journey south. My consolation is there are lots of flowers in the yard for them to feast on. I am glad to see that the honeybees seem to be making a comeback. I wish I could find the honey.
