Thank you for you comments. Yes, undoubtedly many bees (and other insects) die from wind, rain, and cold. BUT many have incredible protective armor, some even waxed to water proof themselves. Their ability to close their spiracles to keep from drowning and to prevent dehydration during drought is a marvelous adaptation for their survival. Each species has its particular gifts it seems to beat the elements. Honey bees are more prone to adverse conditions than many of the other hymenoptera. BUT thank God they are returning (at least it seems they are making a come-back). Again, thanks for your interest.

Warmest regards,
