Theoretically speaking any bee sting cant cause sleep, but what it does is raise the blood pressure. If he had blood pressure disease this might be the cause for sleepiness. Taking a nap is not a problem but wake him up frequently. If he remains sleepy please take him to a hospital.
Hope you find my suggestion useful. Any further questions are welcome.
Thanking you
