Polliator follow-up. 295 Growing Degree Days (B42)

Control.  Approximately six inches of fly ribbon.  Picture taken approximately three o'clock in the afternoon.
Approximately six inches of the fly ribbon in the apple orchard, most buds not open.
Six inches of fly ribbon in the pears.  Potomac pear in full bloom.
Close-ups of some of the pollinators from the pear orchard

This one was under the apples.
---Added later---
Very few bumblebees this year.  I think it is because all of our rain flooded out many of their in-ground nests.  Charlotte, the town just west of us, recorded over six inches of rain in the last 45 days.
