The bees were so bad, I could not sit on my front porch. A friend of ours gave us this contraption that was a plastic bottle with holes in it, that you hung on a hook. You boil 1 cup sugar and 4 cups water, let cool, then pour the water 1/3 from the bottom.
Well, you could make the same thing from a soda jug. Fill with the water and make holes around the bottle the size of a nickle. Set it away from where you are sitting and watch. The bees and wasps just love the sweet nectar, and they won't bother you.
I have heard another version of doing this and putting the top funnel type half backwards in the bottle where the bottle neck is down on the inside. It traps them and kills the mosquitos, but I am not sure I would want to kill the bees though.
