Many of us deal with these unknowingly when we are gardening. This can be a serious situation, often times the colony is extremely large and will sting in a large gang when “threatened.”  We have had many clients come to us after a loved one has been rushed to the ER after a ground bee attacked.  We will come and dig out the colony, remove the nest, exterminate all stinging insects, and apply a spray treatment for any other wandering bees that find their way back.
