Ground Wasps? or not?

EDEL WILLIAMS asked 9 years ago

Last year, we appeared to have a batch of ground wasps in our lawn. They were brown, small and came up from the soil through tiny funnel like entrances/exits. They were gone by the end of June/early July, but they are back. How can I get rid of them so they don’t return next year? They appear to be in greater numbers this year.

These are burrowing bees, not at all common, and very valuable for pollination as honey bees have declined. They make the burrows to raise their young, usually in dry sunny banks. 

They are harmless and you should look on them as a bounty!
