I live in Dutchess County, NY.  I am concerned because I am not seeing
ANY bees.  Earlier in the summer there were a few honey bees coming to
my small (1 acre) property, but no bumblebees.  Now there are no bees of
any kind.

Is this a local occurance?  Is there anything I can do?  Are there local
support groups if I should decide to try installing a hive?

Carol,

I live in Ulster county, but work in Dutchess.  I have had bumblebees this year, but I know of others in the area that have complained about not seeing any either.  I think all the bad weather we have had is the cause.  

I have notice both honeybees and bumblebees working the dandelions outside my office window in Poughkeepsie.

I would be more than happy giving you a hand if you decide to give beekeeping a try.  Feel free to email or PM me if you want to talk some more.
