Application crashes on startup if network is disconnected and map has online services

I can unplug the network once the application is running, however if my application has online web services and I attempt to start the application offline (disconnected), the application crashes.  Should I check network connectivity prior to adding web services to map at startup?  What is the best way to do this?  Is there a better way to handle the issue of "sometimes" connected users?
