Help! Hundreds of our bees are drowning in our hot tub every day!
We've had a hive in our large yard, which also has a covered hot tub, for 3 years.
This spring has been pretty dry, and the bees figured out how to squeeze their way under the cover of our hot tub.
We've started filling our bee water station, which is close to the hive, with water from the tub, but that hasn't helped much.
We are scooping out 100's of dead bees every week! 😭
I can't figure out how to make the cover fit any tighter.
Any suggestions on ways to make them not want our tub water – and yet to keep it usable for us?
