Digger bees, also known as ground bees, are a type of solitary bee often found around gardens or trees collecting pollen. While digger bees may look pretty scary, they are not generally aggressive stinging insects. In fact, the males don't even have the ability to sting.
How To Tell If You Have A Digger Bee Problem
A good way to tell if you're dealing with digger bees or another stinging insect species is to check for nests; digger bees don't live in beehives, but rather in mounds in the ground, hence the name digger or ground bees. They're pretty docile bees and often keep to themselves, unlike a run-in with say a yellow jacket ground nest.
