There are a few different types of Bees in the UK, Bumblebees, Tree Bees, Solitary / Masonry Bees and Honeybees. Bees will only sting you if they feel threatened, this will most likely happen if you are in close proximity to a nest or swarm. Nests can be found anywhere in a house, also in gardens and sheds.
