You know, the kind that "hover". I think that they are also known as "carpenter" bees. The last few warm days that we've been having here in PA have really been bringing them out. MY weapon of choice is a .177 cal RWS model 48 air rifle. On my first hunt, I "bagged" 10 of them. Yesterday was my 2nd time out. I wasn't counting, but I estimate that I got 12-15 of them before I finally ran out of pellets. At ranges from 1 to about 35ft, it's not exactly long range hunting, but it sure is a blast. One bee decided to check out the muzzle from a distance of about an inch. It was no longer there, or any where for that matter, after I pulled the trigger. You need to "hold over" quite a bit with the crosshairs at such short ranges. It takes practice to become consistent at hitting them. There are basically 2 kinds of hits. Shoot-downs, which usually require follow-up ground shots to finish off, and direct hits, which are pretty much vaporization shots, leaving maybe just a couple of tiny pieces to float to the ground. Take your shots when they are hovering, with sky behind them. Position yourself so the shots will be more vertical, as opposed to horizontal, for safety reasons. The model 48 slings em out at 1100fps.
