Bee Problem

Started this discussion. Last reply by Megan Kuhlenschmidt Sep 15, 2011. 6 Replies

Does anyone else have a prevalence of bees at their outdoor pool or waterpark this summer?

Are any waterparks restricting wave pool access for guests under 48" tall?

If so, how do you monitor it? Did you put a barrier in place? What was the response from guests the first summer of implementation?
