We have a pool in the backyard that we cover for the winter. By spring, there is a lot of water on the cover, and the local animals take advantage of this resource. We typically pump off the water in late April or early May when we open the pool for the year. Before this happens, we get birds, toads, bees, and an occasional snake (don’t tell my wife) enjoying the water.
The below picture is a close-up of our pool cover. You can see the two bees drinking at the edge and two tadpoles swimming in the water. This water is really close to my hives and the bees enjoy it as long as it lasts.
May you prosper and find honey.
