Ground bees

Hello, I have a problem with ground bees or I believe their name can be mining bees. How can I get rid off them? Or do I have to leave them be as they are making tunnels all over my garden no bed. Many thanks

    THEY WILL BE GONE IN A FEW WEEKS ONCE THE COLD WEATHER ARRIVES.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • Will they come back next year as they were there last year, if they will can I do something to prevent it?

    They do no harm,just leave little mounds of soil on the surface,bit like worms also do. They are very useful in the garden, especially if you or your neighbours grow fruit or vegetables which need pollinators. AND, they do not sting. We have hundreds of them in our cobbled paths and very welcome they are too.

  • Ok thank you, just wanted to check due to the nature of my job.
