I got bumble bees again. *sigh* they keep re-invading my sprinkler box every spring. You just can’t make them stop because of the scent, they are drawn to it once bees have been there.
So, I went and got some poison – this time I got some sort of powder poison and just sprinkle it around the hole they are entering and leaving from. It worked. The next day no bees were around. I sprinkled the entire sprinkler box on the ground with the white powder. I went for over kill so that it would keep all bees from coming back this season, it doesn’t rain so the powder will last.
The other morning I was leaving out my front door and I noticed white foot prints on the pathway that went across in the direction of cutting across my yard. Uhhhh…. why would someone step on my powdered covered sprinkler box way in the corner between two walls? The sprinkler box is in front of my dining room windows. The footprints are big man boot soles. Could someone have stepped on this on accident as they were trying to look through my blinds? I have no idea. But that creeps me out.
I would think maybe someone was stealing water and used my water hose, but the hose was undisturbed.
So you see where it’s located way in the corner. You can see the white footprints on the walkway, but you probably can’t see them in this picture like I can.
