What’s up with the lack of honeybees?

Letter: Gayle Engstli Grangeville

Dear flower gardeners,

I have a lovely patch of lavender that has bloomed for the last four years. Every one of those years my lavender plants were covered by honeybees. It was wonderful to see. However, this year there has not been one honeybee on the lavender.

Has anyone else noticed this lack of honeybees? I’m hoping someone might have some clues or reasons why this is happening?
