What will eat a ground bee hive
[Return to Topics]

I live in Michigan and out in the field we saw a hole and we went to see what it was. There was a 1'x1' hole dug out which was a ground bee hive. It looks like it was dug up to be eaten. I assume whatever it was ate the larva.

What animal would do that ?

Skunks around here. Thankfully they get quite a few as those yellow jackets are a real pain when you mow over their home. Go figure.

Skunks? Possums? Fox? Got any coytoe in your neck of the woods?

Can anyone identify the kind of bee shown in the attached photograph? and hopefully suggest a benign way of decreasing their numbers. While they are not aggressive, they cover the ground around our property, and are a real nuisance.

Your help is much appreciated.

I just got back from visiting my parents house in Iowa and they have a number of these holes in their yard. The bee I saw carring a locust that went into one of the holes was about 2 inches in length and didn't look any different than a regular bee, just a lot bigger. Gasoline seems to do the trick...

Black Bear will do it any day of the week...

Coyote will do it in a pinch...

There must be others too...

Look for tracks in the soft dirt around the hole...
