Bee's in Lawn

My mothers lawn has masonery bee's or mining bee's,  does anyone have any suggestions how to get rid of them. This is the second year we have had them and is getting worse.

    Masonry bees live in masonry. Many types of bee live in holes in the ground. Why do you think that you need to get rid of them? They pose very little danger to anyone or anything. I am always happy to see bees in the garden. They are perhaps the most beneficial of all insects. Live and let live.

  • I dont mind bee's., but this is getting a problem the front lawn is covered with them and causing a problem with the grandchildren and getting in the home.

    I dont want to harm them just deter them from the lawn

    You could always dig the lawn up. That would fix them.

    They don't sting.

    Explain to the children, show them pictures online, let them watch quietly from a little way away - they're usually fascinated by them image

    If they're too young to keep away they won't be out there unsupervised anyway will they, so adults can keep them away from the bees' area image
