Looks like a bee but stings multiple times..HELP!

Hello! I really need some help here. A few weeks ago I was sitting watching my chickens and what I thought was a bee landed on my face. I stayed still but it stung me anyway! I obviously moved away quickly and it followed me stinging me again on my face and arm before I finally killed it. Knowing that wasps, not bees, sting repeatedly I was convinced it was just a wasp not the ground "bees" by my chickens coop. Well a few days later another came at me and looked just like these ground "bees". So I dumped bleach down the holes I knew of, and felt guilty. I few days later I saw a couple trying to get in the old holes to the hive but had no problems.
Today one went after my dog!!! She got stung several times before I got it focused on me...and finally killed it. I'm really confused and don't know what to do. They can mess with me but not my furry kids! I know how important bees are and love them...whatever these are, they have to go. Any advice would be greatly appreciateThank you!

Is this a ground cherry "Goldie"?

I thought I was growing a ground cherry "Goldie"? Can anyone identify. (Note: there is a spaghetti squash in the background, please ignore.). This plant is about 7 to 8 feet tall.

What is this early blooming blue flowered bulb based perennial?

Hello, and thank you in advance for helping amateur botanists and other plant enthusiasts out. I have this pretty blue flowered perennial (it's bloomed at least three years straight ) and it always beats the crocuses and daffodils to bloom. It seems to be bulb based, I am curious as to what it is so I can get it to fractal some more bulbs instead of having just one concentrated plant. I live in Quakertown, Upper Bucks County, PA, 18951. I think we are zone 6 b.

Two years ago I bought, what I thought was, a raspberry plant but now I don't think it looks like a raspberry leaf. I am worried that I bought something that may not be edible - any ideas?

Garden pest infestation (foto included)

Hello - I'm having a persistent infestation of these insects. They were on a backyard boxwood, and I got them off with a product called Eight. Then they appeared on some Black-eyed Susans, which I pulled. Now they're on the clematis. What do you recommend? Elizabeth
