A couple of things have helped me discourage bees:

1. Avoid yellow flower openings as they seem to attract bees. In the past I have used red nail polish to paint over yellow ones.

2. Avoid spilling any syrup when refilling the feeder. Bees seem able to find syrup from leaks and spills.

3. Remove the feeder for a few days -- it seems that bees have shorter memories than do the hummers.

Good luck,
Norm
