I speculated a little while back on whether many bugs would struggle because of the endless downpours of the last month or two. The BBC comes along with an answer: yes, especially honeybees and butterflies. Bumble bees are however a more 'native' species and adapted to our climate and survive better. And it hardly needs mentioning that slugs and snails are having a field day. Don't my Hostas know it!
