Here's a video that might help you - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7X5GOFQe_8
If they are bees, I would call a professional to remove and relocate them. We need more bees! Wasps, yellow jackets, etc. are a different story. Wasp spray can be very effective, especially in the evening when they return to the nest.
You have to know what kind of bee. Honey bees you cannot kill. Yellow jackets , hotnets and wasps are what is most common. If they are under a window sill, a small grey honeycomb shaped nest, spray at night when they are in the nest. If it is a hornet next, (paper ball) they are more aggressive and depending on size you may be able to spray yourself. If the colony is large, call an exterminator.
p.s. many exterminators around here are not ALLOWED to spray honey bees. There are people that come to remove the entire nest.
Check to see if they are going into a small crack around the window. They may have created a nest behind the siding. A good time to watch is in the late evening as they go "home" at night. You can easily get rid of the bees by using an insecticide at night when they are all "home", then sealing the siding. However, we are in a situation where bees are dying and it's affection agriculture. The BEST thing you could do would be to find a beekeeper who will remove them for you. Then you can seal up the siding. Wishing you the best.
