In all collisions linear momentum must be conserved

i.e. momentum before collision = momentum after collision

so you could start to tackle this question by resolving the initial momentum of both objects into x and y components

when you add those together they have to be equal to the final momentum of the combined bee + ball object (which has the mass of the bee + the ball)
