DO NOT AGGRAVATE BEES
Most bees, even those in large numbers will not usually attack people unless they are aggravated. Don’t use any noisy tools within 50 yards of a hive as loud noise antagonizes them. Don’t swat at or kill a bee,if you don’t kill it you will just annoy it even more and if you do happen to kill it the bee will release a defense pheromone which calls other bees that will attack you. In case you do inadvertently manage to aggravate a hive of bees they will most likely warn you before attacking by bumping their heads on you. If this happens your best course of action would be to leave the area without swatting at them. There are many different types of bees, not just the common honey bee and it’s important to know which bee you are dealing with.

Killer bees are a type of honey bee. Bumblebees live in small colonies consisting of anywhere between 50-400 worker bees. They have a distinctly fuzzy body. Leafcutter and Mason bees are solitary in the sense that it is usually a single female that makes a nest and provides for the egg cells that will become larvae.
