Adair Beekeeper offers advice on bees and birds

Maybe the answers will come out at next Green River Bee Keepers meeting at the Taylor Co. Extension Office, 1143 S. Columbia, AV, Campbellsville, KY, at 7pmET/6pmCT, March 15 2011

Shirley Jones writes:Ed, We feed the birds and also have honey bees. I noticed the bees on our bird feeders a few days ago also. I don't know how to keep them off unless maybe put some feed out close to the hives. We also feed the humming birds when they come back in the spring. I have found the way to keep the bees off the humming bird feeders is to put vaseline around the feeding holes. It doesn't seem to bother the humming bird, but the bees don't like it and will stay away. The Green River Bee Keepers meet the third Thursday of the month at 7pmET at the Taylor County Extension Office. Eveyone is welcome to come. Maybe some one will know how to solve the bird feeder problem. - Shirley Jones
