Dilemma- ground bees. [View all]

Last edited Tue Jul 9, 2019, 01:28 PM - Edit history (1)

So we just had a pro come and take care of a ground hornet nest.

This morning in the back yard I see a bunch bees flying around in one spot on the ground. I check it out and there’s a hole. They are going in and out. Look I know bees are important (at our old place I routinely left clover uncut for them) but I don’t want anyone getting stung by them. Apparently just flooding them usually does the trick.

(Shatner voice) BUT..... should I!?!

żOpinions?

Oh and there’s this too:

Make a soda bottle trap

A soda bottle trap attracts the bees and then traps them; they eventually drown in a solution and die a slow death. You can easily make your own soda bottle trap at home using a used soda bottle or any plastic bottle. Cut it in half and fill one portion of it with sweet soda or some fruit juice. Hang it on or around the beehive in the ground and leave it for a few days.
