Smart Little Bees

The weather has been so cool this summer that the mosquitoes have not been a problem-until now. The City fogged with Malathion twice this week; once Sunday night and then again last night. I am not keen on on this Malathion stuff. It tends to kill the bees and the dragonflies without doing anything to the mosquitoes, not to mention keeping me awake at night with the whining noise the spraying truck makes as it makes its rounds. The truck sounds like a kazillion mosquitoes concentrated in one area.
I was happy then to see two bumblebees in the garden when I came home today. Maybe they will make it through the whole summer!
