Remove Water

Water is another factor that often attracts Bees and pests to your home.  Remove sources of water by covering drains and rain barrels to prevent access.  Clear away any debris or unused containers that could collect water after a rainstorm.  If you have a water feature in your yard, make sure it is continually circulating and clean it often.  Additionally, you can place two tablespoons of vinegar in birdbaths or water features to discourage Bees from drinking.
