    There are different kinds of bees and their behaviour patterns are different - some swarm, some don't. But mostly they are harmless unless they are disturbed.

    You do need some expert advice, and your local council is the place to start.

    Could they be drones. The queen bee throws them out when there work is done and they die.

    Of course your house is not toxic. Bees are very peace loving creatures and it is rare to find them in a house.

    At the weekend I saw in Aldi some bee/wasp catcher thingy's, they are plastic & look like a small hive with a hole in the bottom, apparently they fly into the 'catcher' but are not able to get out. This may help in the meantime until you are able to find the nest & get rid of them completley.

    The decline of bees is a serious problem in the UK and many other countries. They need to be protected at all costs - without their pollination activities, many crops will fail.
