How to ward off bees.

a doctor here at the base told me, because I mentioned to him about all the bees around... he said to get a Yellow Bowl. put a piece of small meat on the bottom of the bowl. cover it with dish liquid and fill it up with water and leave it out where it will attract the bees and Voila! no more bees!

i haven't tried this because when I went to try it. the bees disappeared

I don't mind bees. I have them all over the place along with dragon flies and other assorted bugs because of the gardens. Wasps on the other hand, I do have issues with. I just killed a nest of them the other night and had a bigger nest of them to contend with a few years ago.

I don't really do anything about them unless they have a nest too close to the house. I've learned more about them and why they act the way they do so we've come to a "understanding". I don't bother them when it's their feeding times and they usually don't bother me any other time. They get alittle pissy when I mow the lawn, but tough! It's my yard so they can get over themselves.

I've also been told about the meat thing, minus the dish liquid and water. The idea of having rotting meat hanging around grosses me out, not to mention attracts other critters like raccoons and skunks, so I'd rather deal with them as they are.

I was gonna SAY!!! lol

Anyway, if a bee's nest is on the roof, it means the house is going to burn down. If it's elsewhere, it's a good thing, I think. Bees cause pollination, so they're not all bad.
