HELP! Bees Swarming Hummingbird Feeder
I have a hummingbird feeder which has been undisturbed all summer. This morning, I noticed a couple of bees. Before I realized there was a problem and removed the feeder, they were swarming. They still are -- there are probably two dozen bees swarming it at all times.
The feeder is about half full, and it's going to take a long time for them to empty it. It is located such that the bees are impossible to avoid if I (or my dogs) go outside.
1. Is there any way to get them away from the feeder long enough to get it taken down?
2. Is there then anyway to keep them from the feeder?
