How can I protect my fig tree from the birds & the bees?

12 years ago

I have a beautiful, huge 15 yr. old Celeste fig tree. Up till last year we never had any problems with pests of any kind. First, the bees started in & then this year the birds have 'discovered' us. My backyard started to look like the movie set for Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds'! We finally put up bird netting but don't know what to do about the bees! I'm not sure if they are yellow jackets or honey bees as they look very much alike. Anyone have any success dealing with this problem?

Thanks in advance.
