    Honeybees and pool noodles

    This morning we woke up to find about 50 honeybees appearing to try to pollenate our pool noodles. They were very interested in the noodles and wouldn't abandon them. We finally got them off the noodles and put the noodles in the shed. We've never had that issue before. Anyone else had this?

    I have the exact same problem except it's wasps, the bees seem to leave them alone.
    I don't understand it myself, they seem to prefer our blue noodles the most.

    We had that problem with bees too, now we shake the noodles off and take them in doors when not in use.

    Honeybees used to love our pool and pool stuff. Not sure if dry weather makes it worse. Since we've gone to salt water we never have bees by the pool.
