I always put a saucer full of something sweet far away from our picnic site, especially up on Roan Mountain, TN. Roan Mountain State Park is just so lovely, we can't resist going there with a nice picnic.

This saucer diverts the bees from our drinks and food, because it is sweet and brightly colored like a flower. Thought this might be a good reminder about our bee friends and how they love to get into Coke cans and bottles ;)

Have a blessed evening!

I was reading some old "Country" magazines last month, and came across this tip. If bees are bugging your picnic, do this: Cut an upside down "V" in a gallon jug filled with juice, about 2/3 the way down from the top. Bees go in but they can't get out. Sounds like "BEE U TEE FULL" advice to me!

We just had a new awning installed on the patio. I have noticed that bees are starting to try to move into the awning. I need suggestions on how to stop them? Thank you for any help.
