  1. Hi Beegirl thanks for reply, yes I definitely have contacted Arlo, and also posted on their community... “you must have a beehive nearby” “you must have a wasps nest behind” etc etc... these little fellas are definitely drawn to the camera, and make a repeated obvious deviation to their path to come and do whatever it is they think they are doing to it.
  2. Hi All, A google search to a problem I’m having turned up am Americans similar question on this forum, I just wanted to pick the brains of the bee knowledgable community. I have a property in the Waikato, with security cameras, all of a sudden (September) I am getting up to 100 activations a day from one of these cameras from what look to me (your opinion may correct me) like bees sometimes bumble bees, more than wasps, being drawn directly to the camera, and landing by the lens and interacting with (attacking/mating with/pollinating). Google is awash with conflicting uneducated (and pro insecticide) opinions, so I thought I’d ask those who know, what is going on, and what I can do to dissuade them, If bees, obviously a non harmful technique (ie not an insecticide) is preferred. there is not a “wasp nest behind the camera” a couple of factors I’ve considered are -camera uses infra red for its night vision, can’t get a definitive of this is on during day too. could this be attractive to bees? -this camera attaches via a strong magnet, the other ones on my property don’t and while get buzzed occasionally, don’t seem as attractive. any suggestions and solutions greatly appreciated. I have attached a compressed edited video below, and a link to the product. positioned on a patio, easy facing, under clearlight. https://www.arlo.com/en-us/products/arlo-pro/default.aspx E4793E9F-339F-4844-9939-D626C3714FEB.mov
