Bees Building a Hive in My Container of Flowers!

Bees have suddenly taken over a container of annuals on my patio! Do you think they might attract more bees to take up the same address?? :)

This looks like a Honey Bee likely searching for pollen on your flowers.

You could move the planter to a spot farther away from where you sit. Bee's generally won't bother you and can actually be fun to watch as they move from flower to flower.
It is rare for a beehive to form in a garden.

No sir, I actually thought squirrels had been rooting in it so as I started to put all the soil back in the container, a bunch of angry bees came at me! I have a video following that action but there was nowhere to post it on here. There are layers of them in there!
Thank you,
