Afraid the flower thing isn't possible. The bees are attracted to the trees and we need the shade too much to get rid of them.
I'll have to try the separate water thing if I can find the hive. Instead of a bird bath, I'll have a bee bath. LOL!
hehe see how that works out. Maybe in his case you may need professional help in moving the hive, but why call someone if there's a way to figure it out yourself?
Sorry, just catching up. It's pretty expensive to get a bee expert out and they can't do much unless you have a hive or a swarm. The bees aren't swarming and we never did find the hive. It may not even be located on our property.
We ended up moving the water source for a few days to a different location and that seemed to work so far -knock on wood:)
Thanks for the advice.
It's still working so far. We had a couple hives when I was a kid. So I've seen bees when they swarm. These guys were just being opportunistic I think. After all we've got nice flowering trees and water close together, they probably thought it was a buffet.
