Size depends on context. I'd use a high defense, mook, To the Hilt!, and several grades of Tough.

Not saying it's how I'd build it, just some thoughts.

I have some something similar in my SG-1game when the heroes took on a company of Nazis who were attacking a town.

How would that work? Large creature, immune to crits, Reach 6?

Pretty much - I'd go with Reach 0 though (the swarm engulfs the person).

I was thinking a bee swam could probably attack all over the place.

Very good point.  What size bees are we talking?  I was imagining regular size bees, but the size of a small dog then yeah, Reach 6 or so.

This has me wondering about good old regular bees
being Nuisance (N) sized means you could throw 32 of them per square.  Really use the swarm quality to make them dangerous something like 
Bee (Nuisance Animal Flyer 12 XP): Str 10, Dex 12, Con 10, Int 1, Wis 6, Cha 2; SZ N (11, Reach 1); Spd 30 ft. flight; Init I; Atk III; Def I; Resilience I; Health I; Comp I; Qualities: mook, swarm.
Attacks/Weapons: Gore I (damage type: stress)
plus what ever trick used for the big guys

Of course, the weird thing is, in real life bees don't normally die when they sting, that's something that happens by accident when a bee stings something large with thick skin (like a person).
