Depending on where you live, they are probably not bees but yellowjackets. Yellowjackets are a kind of wasp that resembles a bee.(they also make small amounts of honey) They nest mostly underground. They are relly nasty when disturbed. Unlike a true honeybee that loses its stinger after it stings someone, the yellowjacket can (and does) sting repeatedly. Thet can be eliminated by locating the holes from a distance and marking them with a stick and then returning at night after they have retreated into their nest for the night and pouring gasoline into the holes. DO NOT LIGHT IT! The gasoline alone will kill the yellowjackets.
