How can I stop bees from going in my birdbath, the birds won’t go in it with them there?

Thank you for your question. Sorry the answer is delayed. Unfortunately, there may be no magic cure for this. As the following article explains, bees need water, too: http://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=11349 One practical solution you might try is tp create a ‘bees only’ water source by putting some stones, moss and a bubbler in a bird bath or pot, and you may find they like it more than the birdbath. I’ve attached a photo of one idea below. Good luck!
