I just notice a bunch of honey bees in the front yard in a bush. How can i tell these are regular honey bee’s and not killer bee’s?

I live in East Tennessee and today my backyard has been spontaneously invaded with a large amount (possible several hundred) of insects. They appear to be mostly black with little shine to their bodies. They appear to have a soft body, they do not have a “shell.” They fly quickly around the yard rarely getting above about a foot. I am assuming they are bees, but I do not like to assume
I would think that the weather and city would be important information to determine what they may be.
I’m not good with identifying or understanding why the insects are here so I’m turning to Yahoo Answers for suggestions.
If you need any more details please ask
Thanks in advance.
I checked in a “safer area.” They seem to be mostly a type of bee with a yellow ring on black thorax. Sorry if it’s painfully obvious, I am so sheltered
Oh and they appear to only be in our yard, we are the only yard with an apple tree if that matters.
I am fairly sure they are carpenter bees. They are about the size and color of bumble bees but they are hairless on their abdomen from the few that I was able to approach. I know nothing of carpenter bees, what should I worry about

We have a huge tree in our front yard, Oak I believe. About 2 weeks ago, we started noticing a large amount of bees swarming all around the top of the tree. There are 5 different kinds that we have see so far. Our driveway is under the tree branches, and our windshields stay covered in this waxy substance. We have had a beekeeper out, and he said there was nothing that could be done because there was no hive. They are everywhere though, on the ground even, walking around. I’m just scared because we have a 2 year old daughter that can’t even go outside and play because of the bees. We don’t want to cut the tree down because it is huge, and it provides a lot of shade. Is there anything that can be done to get rid of all these bees? Thanks for any help.

Well i just found a bee in my yard and he cant fly
I couldn’t just let him sit there and let him get attacked by something so i put him in a jar with a couple of flowers x_x
My questions are-

2.If i do keep him, what do bees eat?
my front yard is littered with ground bees. hown can i get rid of them without calling an exterminator?
