Please try calling a professional to get the bees out of the yard to the extent possible. Bee stings can be very painful to the dog and can result in an allergic reaction.
I would speak top your vet about medications and how to handle bee stings. The dogs I have known that were stung were given medications to stop the allergic reaction. But, you need to see a vet about those.
Here is a web site on bee stings and dogs: http://126.96.36.199/canine/bee.html
But, PLEASE, like humans a bee sting can cause an allergic reaction in your dog. So if you see swelling get to a vet ASAP. This is why I suggest you contact your vet and get a plan of attack ready should the event occur.
