About a week or ten days ago, I realized that the bees I've been feeding aren't around. Should I worry? Am assuming it's because some flowers are blooming in the area and we've had some rain. Am just hoping they haven't fallen victim to one of the diseases.

They may have found a closer water source. Bees will generally go to the nearest water source to their hive. If you've been having wet weather, there may be puddles that are closer.
