It could be some form of beetle or a fancy moth. They have spray to get rid of them it may take a few applications but it will work if you stick with it.

I don't know of a bee that resembles a moth, but I have seen a a black and yellow moth that resembles a bee. It is called a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth in the US, and Bee-Hawk Moth in the UK. They resemble a bumblebee, but they buzz around more like hummingbirds, hence the US nickname.

What it might be is actually a moth that resembles a bee. The clearwinged sphinx moth resembles a bee because of it's color. The color makes them appear dangerous.
