My bees wouldn’t stay out of my dog’s watering bowl and not only were they annoying her but they were drowning in large numbers.

At first I tried using a bird bath and changed the water twice a week for my bees, but never saw them using it. I think it was too close to the hive (they like their water source to be a bit farther away from the hive) and the birds were always in it.

So then I turned a medium sized pot into a water garden with plants and a piece of wood for them to land on. The bees are loving it! Every time I have gone to check on it there are 20+ of them drinking. Since I have set up the garden I have not found a bee in the dog bowl.

As for preventing mosquitoes, I plan on ordering a few tadpoles or feeder fish.

Actually, the best way to prevent mosquitoes and accidental bee drownings is to stuff even MORE stuff in there!

Shells, moss, stones, flowers.

Glass marbles

Or just stones! 

These make the best bee waterers, in my experience. It makes it really hard for mosquitoes to set up shop in the watering hole and next to impossible for your bees to drown in it. Plus, you can deck it out with all kinds of decorative things that will make it look cool as well as help the bees have safe access to water.
