Bye Bye Bees

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 30, 2010

The Pacific crabapple blossoms in perfect timing with the Duke blueberry. The buzz in the crabapple tells you the bees preference. While honeybees are fickle the bumblebees stick with the blueberries. I have never seen a bumblebee on a crabapple blossom.
