Re: Bees? Or Yellow Jacket Wasps?

Thank you for the additional information. Definitely bees. The problem is at a large boarding stable. One horse has already been severely stung so it is hard to be sympathetic when there are 200-300 bees hovering around each of several water tanks. They are everywhere on the property where there is any water or dampness and have come over from the orchard next door. As of yesterday, water containers have been placed near the hive boxes in the orchard and some of the more infested water tanks have been emptied but they come over anyway and continue to return to the same locations. The stable managers are working to get the situation quieted down.
