    Keeping bees away from pool

    We have a problem with bees being attracted to our pool, especially when solar cover is on. We saw some home remedies online such as spraying vinegar or soapy water. But what will vinegar do to solar cover and pool chemistry, and soapy water in the pool does not seem to be good either. Any other solutions? Was not sure where to post this thread so I started here.

    Super pump (not sure of HP secondary to corrosion of label),

    Re: Keeping bees away from pool

    I consider bees (honeybees in particular) as a beneficial insect, so I would focus on encouraging them to move to greener pastures as opposed to eliminating them. This thread has some good suggestions from a beekeeper.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
