I get the feeling many people get hornets and wasps mixed up with honey bees. Bees are fat with yellow/black stripes and fly low. I have them in my garden and they seldom harm a person unless you accidently sit on one or put pressure them. If you are allergic to bees then you carry a special kit with you at all times. Hornets and wasps (elongated and thin in body, can be yellow/black or other colors) are the nasty ones that can leave a very nasty sting.
