Where are all the bugs this summer?
The past few summers there have been over run with over 1000's of bugs. Lady bugs,ants,bees.
You name it.
Not many at all here in North Carolina.
Does anyone know if this has anything to do with winter weather?

Maybe they've moved north? I'm from Northern VA, and we've had a normal amount of bees and ants (lots and lots of ants) not to mention being over run with stink bugs... those things are EVERYWHERE

Same as what Carla described.

I'm in West Central Pennsylvania, Stink bug Capital... I'm thinking last winter had something to do with keeping the populations low.
