I expected ours to come into the bedroom and was surprised when they didn't.

Yours could be tree bumblebees as well Forestedge

My nectaroscordums have an oniony smell, but agree this isn't one

Yes Kmcg, onion but not necessarily as strong as the ones in the kitchen. But always a hint of onion.

Have you a photo of the plant just by itself, no hand?

"Fishing" Waders

What about a wet suit, then it won't matter if you have to swim

Dunno Forest edge, need to ID the bees.

Bees only sting if provoked, mostly they die if they do. Who's going to provoke them?

Beekeepers are only interested in honeybees

they are part of life in the natural world, nothing to get alarmed about or start killing

I think that's what honey does naturally. You'll have to eat it more quickly

Can someone I.D this please

Your astilbes are probably cultivars (ie Cultivated Varieties) and would not seed true. This could be an astilbe seedling

oh yes they do nest in the same place twice 

Not the same bees though, except maybe the queen.

Honeybees are a longer term project, there were enormous honeycombs in the roof when we arrived here. They had to move on when we re-roofed.
