Solar flares don't contain any kind of EMR that's not already coming from the sun. The content of Solar Flares that make it to Earth is mostly charged particles, which don't make it beyond our upper atmosphere (Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights).
I got a feeling that some how EMF and Scalar waves are also responsible for the death of Bees. as they are so harmful for human beings they must hurt them as well. aany ideas. ???

ya surely. most of the animals can see what humans can't. and detect environmental anomalies pretty quickly than humans

This past year, I noticed that the number of bees was variable and dependent on which flowers were around. The bees did not go after every type of flower at the same rate, with many flowers ignored.
The flowers that did the best were the early summer flowers which also attracted butterflies and hummingbirds. It was interesting to see dozens of butterflies and bees working side-by-side. They were all polite to each other even after bumping into each other. The bees were not aggressive.
But once those flowers were gone, the bees were much more sparse. The bees returned again in larger numbers near the end of the summer, along with butterflies and light brown and beige wasps. They were all going after a white variant of a hydrangea looking shrub, with fragrant but sparse flowers. This drew the largest swarm of butterflies, so maybe the bees use them as a cue.

Sorry, but that has nothing to do with bees. There is not enough gravity variation on the surface of the earth to have any effect whatsoever on bees' ability to see.
Impossible in science Means impossible!!
UK: Researchers have argued that bees’ ‘dances’ – which they perform on the hive’s honeycomb in order to provide other bees with directions to flowers – contain more mistakes if they dance while they are horizontal, due to gravity.
waggle dancing bee
The researchers realized that sometimes, the bees' dances are more variable. If the bee is trying to signal to others to head 20 degrees from the sun, they will sometimes signal 18, then 22, then 19 and maybe 23, but the average will be 20.
When bees signaled angles close to the horizon, like 90 or 270 degrees, they seemed to have much more trouble staying on point than when walking directly up or down. The researchers think that horizontal angles are more difficult because the bees need to work against gravity to stay in a straight line.
