Why are bees attracted to my water fountain and not my swimming pool?

April 15th, 2012 § 6 comments

I used to have a bees’ nest in my backyard which we finally removed. The remover found about 7 queen bees. I used to find dead bees in my swimming pool all the time. Now, I only find an occasional bee in there. But now my water fountain, in the front yard, is swarming with bees. Probably about 20 live bees at the time and 10 dead ones in the water. The live ones seem to go in and out of the water. They seem to congregate on one side of the water fountain. I don’t see that they’re building anything and I’m curious why they’re around and what I can do to get rid of them.
