You can pour very soapy hot water down the entrance and scatter mothballs around and in the nest. Then, cover the entrance with dirt and keep the soil moist at all times, like with a hose. when you see no bees (should take about4-5 days), wait a day, then dig up the nest. PS If by some chance bees would come out when you are near... RUN!

How can you get rid of a bumble bee nest under your decking?

To get rid of a bumble bee nest under your decking, spray it well with an insecticide that is made for killing bees. Spray at night, when all of the bees should be in the nest, and stand well back from the area. Most bee-killing sprays will shoot a stream at least 20 feet long. If it is a large nest, or if the nest is inside a crack in the deck or wall, consider having a second can on hand in case you need more than a single can to treat the area.

Professional removal is the way to get rid of bumble bees in wood.
