Why Bees Love Pools
Bees and their young live in honeycombs, and the Beeswax which the honeycomb is made of has to stay at a constant temperature… So in HOT weather, bees actually COOL their colony!
Bees work at collecting WATER and spreading it throughout their colony, then they actually FAN the air causing evaporation which COOLS the colony. Bees will collect this WATER from any source they can… For example your SWIMMING POOL, bird bath, dripping faucet, or sprinklers.
How to Control Bees that are gathering around your pool…
At first sight of bees around your pool, spray them with soap and water.
This will kill the bees quickly and the word will not be spread about the location of your POOL (or good source of water). When you see any bees around your swimming pool, spray them with SOAP WATER again.
