There is no fall flow where I live but I have located a property owner north of me who will let me set up an out yard. I plan to put the bees as far as possible from his home up against the property line which borders a huge open field.
His swimming pool is 100 yards from this spot. I plan to put out buckets of water with floating straw or foam peanuts as a water source.
1. How far away from the bees is optimum for my buckets?
2. Is there something I can put in the water (salt, etc.) that will make it more attractive than pool water?
I don't want to wear out my welcome on his property with bees in his pool.
