Out in san diego, it has to do with nearbye ground covers. the only ground cover that provides little or reduced "bee action" is gardina and vinca, red apple is the worst, if that is within 200-300 yards of your pool= lots of bees!!

My pool is in Arizona(Phoenix/west valley) and I've never had a problem with bees. Must be something in your area attracting them.

They could be Arizona Honey Bees or Africanized Honey Bees. In the Mojave Desert where I live (Quartzsite-ish), they will gather around any place that has water available, like a dripping faucet or a swimming pool.

99% of all bees in Arizona are in fact Africanized Honey Bees. Don't be too alarmed. They are probably just getting moisture and returning it back to their hive. you want to just let them be...unless you notice that they have established a hive on your property. Details in the related links below.

With honey bees, swarming is the method of splitting a colony that is getting overcrowded. Yellow jackets (wasps) and bumble bees do not live in such large colonies and, in any case, they only live for one season so they do not have any need to swarm.
