    Try peppermint extract on the feeder. Bees don’t like the smell but it doesn’t bother the birds. You do have to reply it though.

    My Mom told me she uses vegetable oil, so my husband put olive oil on the feeder, and the yellow jackets keep their distance.  You do need to reapply every day, but it seems to help!
