In SW Virginia - There have been very few butterflies, and honey bees.
The Monarch Butterflies were frozen out in several "wintering" places,
the honey bees are suffering from mites in the hive.  Several people who
have always provided as much honey as I have ever needed don't have 
this year - in fact they are out of the bee business.  You're right -

anyone heard any predictions about what's going to happen here???

I had noticed that I got very few bee pods this year.  I usually have scads 
of them because I do not pick my spent blooms.  Rather I leave them in 
the hopes that I will have the time to evaluate each of my iris.  I assumed 
that the lack of bee pods was caused by the dry weather.  I also notice 
that this year we have almost no wasps.  Normally they are a real 
problem flying around and bothering everyone.  This year I have only 
seen 6 or 8.  Wonder why there are fewer of them?
