Now that my daffodils have bloomed should I cut off the seed bulb where the flower was?

You can cut away the flowering stem now that the flowers have faded, but allow the foliage to die back on its own. The leaves are transporting energy to the bulb for next year's bloom. After the leaves wither and turn crispy brown, you can cut them down at soil level.
