OK I'ts been raining ALOT this spring...

How can I check on them when it's been raining steady for almost 3 solid weeks. Will not checking on the hurt them?

A bright red umbrella calms them from what I hear.

Really, a little water does not hurt them, just make it fast when the rain breaks a little.

same here.  as long as you know they had enough food, not checking them is probably good for them.  less disruption  ;-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have found that AFTER the long period of rain it is important to check on them. When it rains alot they don't fly as much and they get crowded. Check for swarm cells.
