Thank you for the very informative article and great photos. Ever since we installed a pond in our garden, we've been fortunate to have bees visiting almost constantly. Without fail, early in the evening they make a beeline for our neighbors' hives.

Would this also attract carpenter bees? I would love to do this, but my condo community has a terrible problem with carpenter bees. The last thing I want to do is help the carpenter bees thrive in our wood.

We live in Yuma Az. I have bees in my backyard year-round. I have a bird bath where they water. However, when it's 110-plus degrees, it's a busy place. I like the idea of a second watering hole.

Thanks, enjoying a spectacular day at a fountain trying to figure what the bees are doing??  
Question answered! The bees are happy and giving me a quick "buzz" vestigating me in a friendly way. Never too old to learn.

Our neighbors' back yard has a bee hive. I'm fascinated watching the bees and was wondering why they come gathering when I water my garden. Your article taught me why.
