I live in the city and around me are houses and about a mile away is a small lake. Then roughly 2 1/2 miles is a nursery. I would have thought there would have been alot of nectar this year because in spring the pollen was so thick car were being covered in a yellowish color of pollen. I have never seen that much pollen.
40 years ago I had my bees on the small house area where all houses had gardens. Fruit trees and berry bushess gove an enermous yield during June and then in July nothing. I moved bees 15 km onto forest cutting areas. First I used bicycle in transporting and later moped.
Now I have hives in small rural village. But there are too much hives in one place. I migrate hives inside the radius of 20 km. There I get 100 kg honey/hive and in my cottage years perhaps 30 kg.
Yes, pollen are everywhere sometimes but those trees are wind pollinating
and bees get nothing from them.
But Texas is very different from my place which is at the level of Anchorage Alaska.
This summer in some places beekeepers have got nothing on western coast because nature is so dry.
