Did you have the sliding door open earlier? You need to figure out where the bee got in because a colony might 'bee' lurking.
You are lucky the bee did not sting you after you gave it a headache.
So I was sitting there, minding my own business drinking coffee and playing Fallout Las Vegas. I look over because I could hear Mynx tearing around somewhere and she runs out looking up at the ceiling. She runs up to the sliding door and she's still looking up and I glance around but I couldn't see anything. She runs around a bit more and then I see some big thing fly above me! I freak out and jump away (I guess I should mention I had Eve sitting on my lap eating some green beans).
I take off into the kitchen and dump Even onto the counter and shoe Mynx away while trying to think of something I could use to kill this mean looking bee (more like a wasp). I kept ducking away and running whenever the bee made a pass but it mostly hid behind the curtains of my sliding door. I planned on keeping it there and trying to kill it through the curtain, but I was having some troubles seeing it after a while.
My first weapon was a rolled up bit of newspaper but I discarded that cause it wasn't big enough. I thought about using my grocery list pad since it was pretty wide and flat, but that wouldn't do. In the end I ended up pulling on my oven mitts and battled the bee in a little hand to tentacle like appendages!
My first shot at the bee was through the curtain but then that missed and he found his way out and darted for my face. I made to clap my hands on him but he ducked back just in time. Freaking out because I was pissing this bee off and I knew they got pretty mean when you make them mad, I just jumped forwards and squished it into the sliding door. That didn't kill it but he fell to the groove of the sliding door track and buzzed and twitched. I couldn't squish it cause my mitts were too thick so I grabbed my grocery list pad and pressed it down into the track a few dozen times.
In the end, I scooped the bee out and tossed it in the garbage. Following this epic battle I texted my friend something like "HOW DID A BEE GET IN MY APARTMENT!?!?!?!? I HAVE SCREENS ON MY WINDOWS!!!!"
Oh yea, I had to yell at Mynx a few times because she kept trying to slink out and chase the bee! Bad kitty! I do not want you to get stung!

I still can't open my sliding door because my balcony hasn't been finished. The only place I could think of is the window in the bedroom because I have a portal AC unit venting out of it. I did find a bit of a gap in the screen near the bottom, a fault in the design of the window I guess. I bit in some of the foam that came with the AC unit to plug everything up and got some tape in along the seams. Hopefully that's enough because I'm terrified of bees!

That would make sense. Keep an eye on that foam. Some types of bees will bore right through it.
