Help with swarm
Hello. I am hoping this forum can help me. I am having trouble with a bee swarm that is attracted to my pool. There are thousands of them swarming to get water. It looks like something out of a killer bee movie. (They are regular honeybees.) I am afraid my kids are going to be stung and it makes using the pool miserable with bees flying everywhere.
There are no local hives, and they appear to come from the woods behind our house but I cannot find the hive. I have tried covering the pool, placing dishes of water closer to their hive in the flight path, and contacting bee keepers to see if they could help. One beekeeper told me there was nothing he or I could do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am desperate. I will probably end up spraying insecticide if I can't find a solution, but I REALLY don't want to do so.
