There are these big bee-like insects in my yard. What are they and how do I get rid of them?
I was just sitting out on my deck sun bathing and all of the sudden this giant bee like bug comes over and starts buzzing around me. I tried to run in the house, and it started chasing me Luckily I got in the house just in time, and it didn't sting me. I've had a few other encounters too, but that was one of my scariest.I couldn't get that good of a look at it because it was so darn fast, but I'm pretty sure it was brown and had a slim body. They're also pretty big, and very aggressive.I can't find the nest anywhere, and I don't want to either. They're so aggressive, if I even were to go near the nest a whole swarm of them would probably sting me.Also, it only attacks me. My parents have been outside all day and it never bothers them, I don't know why they hate me so much.
Can you help me identify these insects / bugs?

What kinds of fungus or insects like to grow on a white oak?
I have a young white oak tree in my front yard, now the tree seems alright but I noticed on several of its leaves that it has a strange fuzzy tan colored growth. The growths vary from the width of a dime to that of a pin head. I tried to include a picture of one of the larger ones but I guess pictures do not post here. Anyway, I just want to know if these fuzzy growths could potential harm my tree.
