Re: Bees in saltwater pool.
When you say saltwater, are you talking about the little chamber next to the pump and filter that you pour rock salt into? Or is this saltwater like the ocean? The system into which one pours rock salt simply creates the chlorine by dissociating the salt into Cl2 and NaOH. Pretty much the same as pouring bleach into a swimming pool. And yes, bees love chlorinated water. The only way I know to get the bees away from the pool is to offer them a better water source, perhaps a very light sugar syrup with a little bleach added.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
