    put several bowls of water out from you that will attract the bees to it and not you! That's what I've heard anyway .

    Yes, and a little sugar added to the water will attract them even more.

    Apple cider vinegar probably won't attract bees. Possibly it helped reduce the pH of the horses' urine which might slightly help them if they had crystals in their urine.

    Just get a Bug-A-Salt gun and have a ball! Use mine on yellowjackets around the apple tree, and black flies on the beach.

    get a 1 gal plastic jug and put a 1/4" ball of hamburger soaked in tuna fish OIL in the bottom.
    drill hole in top that will just take a stiff plastic straw used in the party cups so it won't fall out. Has a little ring on it
    cut the straw off at 4" long and push it in from the top till the ring hits the cap. You now have a Bee Trap that can be reused as many times as you want. The bees crawl down the straw to get to the smell and can't find their way out.
    Forgot to say that the Straw should be a Big (3/8"++) one so they can get in easy.
