Bees (or wasps) in our hot tub - please help
We have these wasps or bees that won't leave (pictures below). We have sprayed Raid wasp spray, emptied the dang can, on 'em. They just won't leave.:mad:

We put a bee catcher plastic jug w/orange soda pop in it immediately above their spot but they won't go in it.

Even when the chemicals are 100% spot on what they should be they are there.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Not sure where you're at but down here we're in a drought situation. I get everything from possums to bats(and all manner of insects) in the pool and spa. When they're thirsty they're gonna drink.

You are another Texan----Right?

They are thirsty----Set up another watering hole for the little guys.:laughing:

I wonder if floating a little Baby Oil on top of the water would deter them? And/Or if it'd hurt anything?

They look like honey bees - which are threatened by colony collapse disorder (CCD). Maybe set up a more attractive watering hole for them.

I know it's hard to be compassionate for stinging insects - but honey bees genuinely need all the help we can give them.
