Kamakazi bees

Could anyone tell me why I have a very.larhe bee that has taken to tamming my sitting room window over and over for the last three days. Does this mean I may have a hive somewhere. I have no plants at the side of the house the bee likes. Is this normal behavior?

    Do you have any flowers or anything flowery inside?

    I can't understand why my bees like a pathetic self set non descript to me image poppy and don't like my show off come and get me courgette flowers at the side of it.

    Hi all, I am not exactly certain its the same bee but the size is very large so I am assumng its the same one. I dont have any flowers only grass out front.

    Sounds like a bumble bee perhaps?  There are lots of different species, some very large.  And "bumble" is a good description - they do tend to crash about.  Some species nest in soil or in tussocky grass, in small colonies only.  They rarely sting, luckily...
