Re: removing nuisance bees from water source
Ala french drain. Get a one gallon flower pot. Dig hole. Put flower pot in hole below grade. Fill flower pot with gravel. Add pvc pipe extention and put into gravel. Cover flower pot with dirt and fill hole. Plant a few marijuana seeds in fresh dirt. Wait two months . Call police. Problem solved.
The last part is optional, but worth a shot unless growing weed is legal in MA.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
