holy cow! I am beyond impressed that you installed it!
Well that explains why I can’t get close to my bird bath...there are always swarms of bees on it...I add water with the hose but from a distance. 98 degrees here and still rising. Brutal!The bees are inhaling water , when it is this hot they use it to help cool the hive, like a evaporation cooler. Also use the water to process honey and to feed the brood.
I work right next to them in the pond, they won't bother you. Just stay out of their flight path, to and from the hive and water. I am adding water and pulling some of the excess plant growth.Well that explains why I can’t get close to my bird bath...there are always swarms of bees on it...I add water with the hose but from a distance. 98 degrees here and still rising.

They would need to fly to the river or if it rains a puddle. So instead of a 30 foot flight it would be about 1/2 mile maybe more. Or if someone has a swimming pool, a pond around us they would go there. Then the pool owners would be upset with a ton of bees coming to drink.
Well done sugar . the prolonged warm spring i think gave a lot of ponds issues with disease but this everyday HAZY HOT HUMID CRAP is beyond good for the water plants
