A simple method to get rid of ground bees is by repeatedly watering any area in which they have built nests. Since ground bees build their nests in dry soil, watering the soil is an easy and non-toxic method of control.
Another way to control ground bees in garden beds is by covering these with a thick layer of mulch. These methods encourage burrowing female bees to search for more suitable spots to nest. Keep in mind that ground bees are not aggressive, as they only tend to sting when threatened. Additionally, ground bees serve an important job as pollinators.
