How does a bee move?
Asked in Wasps and Hornets
What do you do if a bee comes near you?
If it is a Honey Bee, simply move away, and do not harm the bee. Do not kill Honey Bees. They provide pollination for our crops and without them the population of the world would starve to death. Honey Bees are not aggressive when away from the hive and unless you step on the bee or otherwise harm it, there is no danger of it stinging you. Hornets and wasps on the other hand are unpredictable and can become aggressive at any time. Move away from any wasp or hornet. If it becomes aggressive then kill it or flee. Move 150 yards away as it will not follow that far. grab a lighter and hair spray and chase the bee down and kill its whole family

What is the Short chubby bee swarming at night?
I myself am a beekeeper and know of no bees that will swarm actively at night. With this said, any bee colony that does swarm may not find a new location to move to in a 24-hour period after swarming from the old colony. So these bees will just stay at the current location (Usually a branch)until the scout bees find a new location to move into the following day. As far as being a “Short chubby bee”, I would think that this would be a bubble bee or one of it’s cousins.
