Hi all well i dont have any bees yet but i have a flowering bush out the front that they seem to like ,now can someone tell me how why these bees seem to visit this bush around 4 times a day not heaps of them just a few i even have a few native bees come hanging around ,do flowers continually produce pollen and is this why they seem to go all over the bush then a few hours later there back again doing the same thing .

What type of Bush is it?
It's providing good nectar or pollen for the bees, I have a few different plants in my yard that attract bees which produce a lot of nectar and pollen.
