Yes they can be dangerous and some people make the mistake of not realizing that they could be wasps or hornets. In British Columbia we have hornets that live in mud under water! Many people have been stung with them. If you or anyone in your family (including pets) are bitten give Benadryl antihistamines (ready label for adults and children) and if a pet is bit, take them immediately the vets. You are going to need an exterminator to help you rid yourself of these ground pests.

Ground bees stings are not dangerous to your health. Of course, if you are allergic to bee stings, then they would be very dangerous, but generally they are not.

Grounds bees are only dangerous if you have an allergy to bee stings. They are not more dangerous than other bee varieties.

No, ground bees are yellow and black and about the same size as honey bees

Ground nesting bees are attracted to bare patches in gardens or in the lawn. Ground bees are important to pollinating.
