Wordless Wednesday with Linky - Bee Invasion! - February 6, 2013



Oh no!  I had to take down my humming bird feeder.  The bees had finally discovered it! Yikes!

It had been just refilled, but was not leaking.


They still came back the next day.


I am going to have to find a new location for it now.  I loved watching the hummers through my bedroom window while I blog.

We do have a lot of bees around our house, and will come flocking to whatever water we have out.  Sometimes it can be almost dangerous to hang the clothes on the line to dry.

  2. Your bird feeder is beautiful and the bees clearly felt it was time to have some of the sweet stuff there!:) I hope you have found a safe place so that the hummingbirds can visit again. Thanks for hosting Danielle!

  4. Whao...that's certainly lots of bees. Love your bird feeder. Hope you found another place in the yard for it.

  5. I have that same problem. You can buy some little filters that make it impossible for the bees to get the sweet stuff. I tried them last year and they helped a little bit!

    Another trick I discovered completely by accident is to spill a little of the sweet stuff somewhere else where the bees can get to it more easily.

    That keeps them occupied for a while too! Good luck! Thanks for hosting and Happy WW! :-)

  10. Wowzers! I am allergic, so I try to prevent them from tasting. is that your clothespin bag in the 2nd photo? (shivers) I rub hot pepper oil on the hummy juice portals & around wear the bottle connects, they don't like the taste, but the hummys don't mind. winter here, so no bees for now. stay safe!

  14. Thanks for linking on Amanda's Books and More and leaving a comment! I'm sorry about the bees, but we do need them for the fruit trees to get pollinated and, of course, for honey. ;)

  15. I once knew a women who took a bee keeping class. It was petty cool.

  16. Eek! I'm glad you didn't get stung. I like bees, but from a safe distance.
