Beside our patio, there is a bee's nest under the foundation of the house. Ordinarily, I wouldn't mind, as I am a gardener and like bees and want them in my garden.
However, there is one bee (I'm assuming it's the same one) who flies around anybody who is on the patio. My daughter was stung as she was going in the house from the patio. Today, I was on the patio and a bee kept hanging around me very closely. I had to go in the house because I was afraid it would sting me. I'm assuming it's protecting its nest?
I'm not sure what kind of bee it is. Do they die in the winter? I will be doing some fall cleanup in the garden soon and I don't know what to do about the bee(s). Any suggestions? I don't like to kill bees.
