I live in a residential community and all the houses have VERY small backyards. It’s not like there are any hives around this area. I have no idea where these bees are coming from. It happens all year long, but more in the spring, summer and fall months. Any ideas as to why I am finding so many dead bees in my concrete patio backyard?

I want rats my dad won’t keep them in house.So can i keep them on my back porch? during summer it not that hot where i live but in winter it cold!During winter i could take them in our garage and keep them heated properly.So would they be ok outside?
I will take them inside and play with them everyday.
the man that lives next door to me raises honeybees and at the end of last summer we started having a problem with them coming over here and getting in the house and i kept going and talking to him about it since me and my oldest son who is 5 is allergic to them. well it turned cold before it got to bad now that it is hot again it has started back i kept seeing them at the end of the house and i was not too worried about it since none had been seen inside. Today my son went to use the bathroom and they where EVERYWHERE!!! so i went and got the man again and come to find out he had been at there about 2 weeks ago and he GUESS he let a Queen escape and he THINKS they have a hive started under my house and i asked him what i could do about it… he said he would hate for me to do it but he guess kill them because he don’t know how to get that many back to there hives so now i am stuck trying to figure out what to do and i have no idea so any help would be great!!!
i live in SC and he lives right next door. I am going to make a few phone calls in the morning and see if i can find someone. The man has had bees for along time but he use to have them way off in the country but when him and his wife broke up he brought them here with him and i don’t think he should be able to have them with all the houses right here this might not be the city but there are a lot of houses right here and i am not the only 1 to have this problem today he gave me a can of ANT killer and told me tonight when they went it to spray and it would kill them but with me allergic i am scared to try and i wouldn’t think ANT killer would kill them either. I hate to kill anything that is living but with me and my 5 year old being allergic it worries me and then i have 2 even smaller children in the home and i don’t want to take a chance on any of them getting hurt

For a summer reading project, I have to make a scrapbook about the book The Secret Life of Bees. The items in the book can be anything; important events from the plot, pictures of other characters, or prized possessions of the main character (Lily). It has to be 10 pages long, and I am trying to pt 2 things on each page, so we’re looking at 20 items. I have about 2 and a half pages done, but still need help.
