Has anyone tried mixing some honey into a water source to try and encourage bees to use a specific water source? I was thinking maybe a table spoon of honey in a gallon of water. I know bees are attracted to unguarded honey and will rob out empty frames, so I am thinking they may be drawn to honey scented water.
Would this work? Would I end up with a hive filled with honey flavored water? Would the bees just ignore it?
