Has anyone planted ficus with a root guard? We need it as a a screening hedge and we wanted to do plant Texas Privet for this purpose but I was told it is a bee magnet and my son has a severe allergy. Do ficus attract bees?

We have privet in our yard and it flowers which attracts bees. I've never noticed a lot of bees but I'm not looking for them because we aren't allergic. I'm not sure it's Texas Privet that I have, but I googled it and it's advertised as attracting pollinators (bees) to your landscape.
