My bees were regularly coming to my half wine barrel water garden and now they stopped. I'm don't know why they decided to go elsewhere. Any thoughts?

They found another source.. Try putting a few drops of lemmongrass oil in your wine barrell. From what I have read they dont really like to change sources but if they found one that was near they hive or even if someone opend a pool they like the colorine..

Thanks, I will try adding something to the water to attract them back. I do have a pool in my yard too that now has accessible water now that we go more rain. I will have to start observing that.
