Does anyone know which bees live in small holes in the ground? We've had swarms of bees that are like yellow jackets in size and not yellow striped and not aggressive (my kids walk through swarms of them without a single notice or sting). They just started coming out. We were doing some gardening and noticed what looked like ant hills throughout the yard. I was inspecting them and saw bees crawling in and out of them. I tried to google but failed. Are these Mason bees? Is there anything I can do to encourage them to nest in a different part of my yard to avoid my kids trampling their homes?
