Pollen eaters

Kathy mentioned the loss of pollen to small insects.  When pollen is
eaten the culprits are often thrips.  You can identify them quite easily
because they are small, slow flying insects that do not have wings.  In
place of wings there is an "arm" lined with very small bristles.  It
looks like a feather.  Under a microscope, it is quite easy.  Without
one, you need good eye sight or a hand lense.  Once you have seen them,
then you will be able to identify them from the way they fly -

Ian, in Ottawa where the temperature is just on freezing and it seems
like spring.  A false hope as that is about 8 weeks away.
