Yea, kind of like a bug zapper, lure them in to the slaughter! I don't like bees swarming around me when I'm trying to work or socialize any more than the next guy (or gal as in my case) either. However, why not try things that will "deter" instead of "lure"? Over the past several years we have had alarming declines in the bee population and luring them just to have them die doesn't seem to be the best way. Life couldn't exist without them. We need the bees! Sometimes I'll look to see if there's a nest somewhere nearby (and usually it is) then I'll get rid of it while the bees aren't in there (well, not me exactly, usually one of my son's).
