Help ! We've got a swarm of bees in the garden

ARE YOU SURE THEY'RE HONEY BEES?
Many people do not know the difference between similar looking insects and assume they have a swarm of honeybees when they may have a wasps' nest or a bumble bees' nest instead

Do they look like this




Are they very smooth with yellow and black stripes? Is the nest in the roof of your house? Are they coming from a round nest in a tree? Is there a nest in the shed? Do they have a high pitched buzz? Are they interested in sweet sugary foods?
