    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.

    Put water out around your corner monument or away from your mining area. They'll stay over there like good neighbors.

    Well I'm not the guy to ask, lol! I've been stung at least 200 times since I was three, and I'm 17 now. Yellow jackets, ground bees, bald faced hornets, Japanese hornets, unidentified hornets, paper wasps, mud wasps, honey bees, and unidentified insects. Not to mention ant bites, from picnic ants, to fire ants, I've been bit by them all.

    I accidentally stumbled on a way to get rid of an inground yellow jacket nest. I was cutting grass and I noticed a few yellow jackets entering a hole in the ground on a bank between our house and our neighbors. The hole was nearly the size of a quarter. I sprayed the hole well with foaming wasp spray and ran like a Democrat from a Trump rally getting stung in the process. I hate those things (yellow jackets). Home Depot sells a wasp and hornet trap made by the company Rescue. They are a long octagon shape sticky trap, green in color, and these had boys work. They are designed to be hung. I located the exit hole in the ground to the next not far from the entrance. I had an old broom handle and I carefully rammed it in the ground next to the second hole. I then slid the handle through the center of the trap to hold it upright. I then sprayed the entrance hole again and a few days later the trap was completely covered and the next was empty. These traps really work. If you have a bee or wasp problem check these out.

    It’s possible that I’ve just been lucky, and it’s not my cocktail, but this is what I have done for a while now, and I haven’t had problems with bees since doing this.

    I buy bite-fighter tiki torch fuel, and add additional cedar oil, peppermint oil (a lot of this), eucalyptus oil, and citronella oil.

    I keep two table-top torches/lamps burning on either side of my panning tub.

    I also keep a small spray bottle in my truck that’s a goulash of insect repelling oils. On the rare occasions I set up a recirculating system, I’ll spray a bit of it on various parts of the system. I also usually spray some of it on my hat. If nothing else, it’ll probably keep humans away.
