Hi Y'all, any suggestions on how to redirect bees from the pool to some other water?

Is mixing sugar & water then placing that as a decoy away from the pool going to work?

They are going for water. A small board floating in the water may help the bees drink without drowning. We need bees so be kind to our small friends.

they are probably worse this year since it was so dry. If you continue to get rain they may find another source.
Just keep an eye on kids and maybe have someone check to make sure they aren't the African bees, they can be very aggressive and dangerous.
