How to get rid of honeybees in my pond, waterfall or pool

In warm dry seasons of the year you may notice heavy bee activity around the pool, bees at your fountain, bees in a pond, or another water source, in some cases this can become a problem. Honey bees need water to make honey, bees prefer natural peaceful locations, but in hot months were some of these resources have dried up bees will seek out other sources. If you need to get rid of honey bees in this case, you have a few choices. One option for getting rid of bees coming to the swimming pool, or water source is to temporarily drain or empty the water, forcing the bees to find a new location and breaking their flight pattern. After a week or two, refill or turn the water back on.

If you cannot empty water in the pool, fountain, pond, or other source, you may choose to add vinegar to it. If it is a small body of water and there are no fish or animals living in it, adding vinegar should help to get rid of the bees. This will cause a disagreeable taste and encourage the honeybees once again to find a new water source.

If you cannot drain the water source, and if adding vinegar to the water, pool, pond, or other location is not an option, you can contact us for other options for getting rid of the bees. There are a few organic compounds being tested to apply as a residual around these areas although they don't work on some circumstances. Another way though not often used, is in tracking and removing and relocate bee nest that has taking over your water source.
