Thanks. I pretty much do the same.
I actually have a number of local water sources around me (stream, swamp, rock area that collects runoff from garden watering) as well as a bird feeder that has never seen a bird, but has seen many, many bees.
I get the idea that if they already have a water source and they don't need immediate feeding then one wouldn't need to put or keep the feeders on.
By the way I SWEAR that I've joined the local beekeeping club and plan to swing more of these questions / polls their way as soon as meeting start up again!
I appreciate everyone's help with the questions that I've posted over the past week or so.
