I recently noticed that I have huge numbers of a type of bee(definitely a Hymenoptera) black body, whitish face and white bulls-eye butt that are swarming a Pussy Willow bush I have in my front yard.
Bush is very healthy, 6 to 7' tall and vigorous. Cannot find any nest of sorts in or around bush but these bees are aggressive and WILL zap you if agitated(don't ask how I know).
My questions are: is this peculiar to a Pussy Willow?, bee mating ? Would rather not kill the bees but if I continue to get stung for just walking by, those bees will be nuked!
