Bee Repellent - Found a solution

A while ago I asked around to see if anyone could help with my bee problem. My pool backs up to the desert and bees were coming to it to drink. At any given moment I'd have 50+ bees drinking from my pool, which sucked since I have 2 little ones. After a lot of searching on the net, the best one I came up with was soapy water to spray them, the only problem is that it only kills the ones you hit and the rest just didn't get the message.

My neighbor is a bee guy and came over with some new stuff they're trying called TenGuard. He sprayed my waterfall rocks and around the pool, I haven't had a bee since. (now they're drinking from the lawn in the AM but I can fix that).

So, if anyone is having problems with bees, you can order this stuff online. He said it will kill birds and fish that come in contact with it, but it dries up and has good residual properties. Kids, dogs, and cats are safe.

Recommended use is 1/2 tablespoon per Gal, but he used 1 oz.

I'm ordering from here: http://www.doyourownpestcontrol.com/...k-permpro1.htm

Hope this helps someone else too.

Huck, half fill a jar with whiskey (rum, vodka, whatever) and kool aid or something really sweet 50/50. the bees fly in, get hammered and don't come out. Seriously, it works.

I might try that too, I just hope the bees are happy drunks!

Dwrat: I'm glad someone found it useful. I'd been looking for a solution for a long time... it was a huge thorn in my side for a long time.
