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!

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.

Hi you need to move the nest at night. It must be taken a minimum of 1.5miles away from were it was sited.

MUST BE DONE AT NIGHT!!!!!

Professional removal is the way to get rid of bumble bees in wood. The insects in question (Bombus spp) prefer to nest at ground level under a flat, low-lying object -- such as boards, decks, stones, tarps -- or in abandoned mammal holes in the ground. Head-to-toe personal protective equipment and professional equipment and training will be required since bumble bees will avoid confrontations or sting like fury.

If there is an underground nest you may be able to pour gasoline into the hole when it is dark and they are asleep but DO NOT light it as it will cause problems. It is the fumes that will kill them.

you can just burn the nest.

In order to get rid of a ground nesting bee hole, it's important to create an environment the insects don't like. The bees are attracted to dry land, so watering the yard and nest will be beneficial in getting them to leave. Insecticides should be avoided since bees populations are decreasing around the world.

spray or pour gas on the nest gas or desel or vingegar

Bees are terrified of fire, beekeepers puff smoke in to the hive to make the bees go to the bottom when removing the honey. I wouldn't recommend taking up smoking just to keep a bumble bee away though

Get a bee professionally trained bee Keeper to open the fan and try and get out the bee then put the fan back.

I think you can use smoke, I'm pretty sure they dislike that.You need to buy a special spray or foam that kills/suffocates the bees first.Spray this into the nest, or fill up the whole nest with the foam.Then, once they are definitely dead, you can remove the nest.If you are not sure, it is best to get a professional pest controller in.

Wait until night, then spray the nest with insecticides.

put some oinment (base) just after the bee has stinged you.

Scream and Run is what I would do but just spray them with fly and wasp killer!

Ask a beekeeper to collect it.
