Get Rid of Bees in Ground


Bees in the Ground
A hive underground

Knowing what kind of bees or wasps you have in the ground may be the first step to the problem (wasp id). Very seldom do honeybees build nests in ground, unless in a rock like cave, against a bank or in a structure that's in the ground. Yellow jacket that look like bees are much more common types of ground bees. Bumblebees also can nest in low structures or in the ground. For basic identification visit the bee id guide. The best time to observe ground bees is typically between 10 am and 3 pm when it's not raining and it's not extremely windy.


Except for honeybees, most if not all of these ground bees will abandon their nests late in Fall season, however many times bee species like yellow jackets, wasps, or bumblebees will return to the grounds unless the nest is dug up or physically and removed. Ground bees are an important part of organic pest control as well as pollination. Some common nuisances ground bees may cause happen when the land or area needs to be tended to but bees or wasps in the ground are delaying or frustrating the work. Another concern is that of people or animals being stung. Sometimes bees are accidentally discovered in parks, which can discourage a picnic, party, or other park event. If you have a problem, call the bee removal hotline.


At times people want to know how to kill or remove ground bees themselves. Removing bees in the ground can be dangerous, but actually pale in comparison to the knowledge and experience required to effectively remove bees in a structure. Here are some do's and don'ts to take into consideration when killing, exterminating or removing ground bees and wasps. As always there is no one right way. Typically the best time to kill bees in the ground, or to remove and relocate ground bees is very early morning or late in evening, just after sunset when all or most of the bees have returned and are in the ground. To kill ground bees, people have dumped gasoline down or on the hole and then light it on fire, using gasoline to exterminate or kill bees in the ground is not the most recommended solution. It is often my time and cost efficient to get help from a bee guy to remove bees in the ground. If your recieving bad news about pricing perhaps try calling someone else. For additional questions or help try the toll free bee hotline (US & Canada). Using protective gear is highly recomended. If a chemical is being used, a dust, or aerosol insecticide that is labeled for the ground bee species is a wise choice. What ever is being used after application have something ready to plug the hole such as a rag, foam or dirt. It is not uncommon for ground bees to have more than one hole or entrance, if you are trying to kill the wasps or bees in the ground, make sure you inspect prior to starting the job.

Joanna
South East England

Hi,

Wondered if you could help identify whether we have bees or wasps burrowing in our shrub border. They are about a half inch in size and are mainly black with an oval shaped body with a distinctive yellow/orange band around the body. I think they have hairs but its difficult to spot with them flying around. Help!

Beekeeper:  Joanna, Do you have access to a digital camera? If so, I recommend taking a picture of the critters in question and uploading it to our what kind of bee page. There I can give you some feedback on what you might be able to identify it as. Thanks.

just moved into our new house and went to clear some rubbish/grass ect ect in corner of yard put shovel in to shovel it into a bin and realised it was a hive, we have children and a dog and would love to get rid of them fast what can i do please help

Beekeeper:  Craig, I see that you're from across the pond... there are several pest control companies in Leeds that should be able to take care of your problem for you, and it sounds like you have wasps, which are very common to that area. Feel free to get some more information about how to get rid of bees/wasps in the ground. Cheers.

Do Honey Bees go in the ground?

Beekeeper:  Eugene, yes occasionally honeybees build nests in the ground but more commonly it is hornets that nest in the ground. These hornets are often called meat bees, sweat bees, or yellow jackets. Your welcome to include a picture for help with identification of the ground bees. Good luck. - john
