I've barely seen a butterfly either this year. We can't keep spraying insecticides all over out fields and gardens and not damage butterflies and bees.
Also it's frustrating that we are being indoctrinated to believe our gardens must be weed free at all times, so get on down to the shop and buy another bottle of poison. Whatever happened to weeding paths slowly? If we kill all the bees we are going to be in serious trouble on this planet.
