I love the color yellow but I'm terrified of bees and any flying stinging animals (no problem with scorpions ;) ). Would it be possible to plant yellow flowers and then plant red flowers next to them / intertwined (like with vining bougainvilleas) or use citronella repel the bees?

I'm not aware of any planting scheme that would serve to repel bees. Even a garden without flowers (or flowers that bees don't use) is likely to be investigated by bees.
